We have made a kinematically complete measurement of the Coulomb dissociation of 11Be on Pb target at 72A MeV. The low-lying dipole strength distribution indicated the importance of the direct breakup mechanism, which was also supported by the observed effect of the Coulomb post acceleration. The E1 dominance of the reaction was confirmed by the angular distribution of 10Be in the rest frame of 11Be.
