National Churchill Museum, Church and Berlin Wall
The magnificent Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a 16th century Christopher Wren church left in ruin from the German bombings during World War II, was brought stone by stone from London and restored on campus in 1969 to commemorate Churchill’s historic “Iron Curtain” speech delivered on campus in 1946. Today the Church is the home of the National Churchill Museum, the only North American institution fully devoted to the life and work of Churchill. Adjacent to the Museum stands “Breakthrough,” a sculpture by Edwina Sandys, constructed from the longest contiguous section of the Berlin Wall to be found in America.
