Honolulu Community College has one of the biggest pieces of history in the state of Hawaii.

The three-ton piece of the Berlin Wall sits in a quiet corner of the campus and on Monday officials will gather around it to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall which once divided the city of Berlin for more than 30 years.

Speeches, music and dance will all be part of a program. And officials are sure to tell the story of how this piece of wall came to be at HCC.

The event starts at 1 p.m. and all students and faculty are invited.
