Berlin Wall Section

There I saw the actual 10x10 Berlin Wall Section.

Address: Passion Play Road, Eureka Springs
Location: Passion Play Road
Hwy 62 East on Passion Play Road. Located on the grounds of the Great Passion Play

Description: As a symbol for freedom from tyranny, a 10 foot section of the Wall is displayed near the Christ of the Ozarks on the grounds of the Great Passion Play. Psalm 23 was lettered by East Berliners while imprisoned under Communism. Always open. Near the Christ of the Ozarks Statue. Free.

There I also know that
