Join German historian Anette Isaacs for a historical and political overview of this period in Berlin’s captivating history.

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. With its rise on August 13th 1961, the course of Germany’s and especially Berlin’s history took a tragic turn. It would take 28 years, until the 9th of November 1989, to tear down this symbol of Germany's division, thus giving birth to yet another period in this European nation’s evolution. Join German historian Anette Isaacs, M.A. as she presents you with a historical and political overview of this period in Berlin’s captivating history.

Registrants will receive a link to join the program via Zoom.
