Course Description

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was a significant turning point in world history, not only marking the end of the Cold War but a new chapter in international democratic freedoms. But how can we explain the building of such a dividing monument? How can we account for its fall in 1989? And how does the Wall influence our lives today? Commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the unification of Germany, this one-day course will examine the historical context of Cold War Europe and the intimate stories of the people whose lives were affected by the rise and fall of the Wall. In addition to the lectures, students will be exposed to recently declassified archival documents and multimedia from the Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin as well as guest speakers who grew up in divided Germany.
