Size is not grandeur, and territory does not make a nation.”
This mural was conceived and transferred to the highrise building by the internationally acclaimed Bahaider. He based it on working with students from this area in Mannheim, who expressed their different ethnic and cultural heritage in drawings. He wanted to remind us that living together peacefully doesn’t happen intuitively but needs mutual respect and tolerance, in a neighbourhood where people with backgrounds of more than 127 nations live. The piece is called Nationen in Frieden (Nations in Peace).
