Inga Merwal in Brisbane contacted us after a call-out on Facebook to tell us her fascinating story regarding Christo's wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin in June 1995. Christo passed away aged 84 on May 31. But his legacy will live on, as Inga explains, and Germans around the world will always remember the Bulgarian-born artist with much fondness.
