The bear was donated to Berlin by Eunice Kennedy-Shriver (JFK’s sister). It was on display outside the Mercedes Benz Center and has now been gifted to us. The colorful bear statue is 3m x 3m and will greet students and families as they walk through the front gate. If all goes according to plan, the bear will be put in place over our February vacation. It is not a simple process and it involves trucks and cranes to reassemble the 454 kg sculpture.
