It all started when the city of Paris wanted to celebrate the year 2000 in style, but with a major emphasis on peace, which is why the Wall for Peace was erected, and this water feature looking like a canal was a part of these celebrations, yet in memory of a Yitzhak Rabin who won the Nobel Peace Prize.
