Berlin Wall & BeyondFaculty:

Description:

Monday, November 9, 2009, is the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, an event that changed history. Many of our students were not even born when the Wall fell, and yet they have grown up in a world that was shaped by the political, social, geographic, and cultural significance of that event. To commemorate this important day in history, several members of the UW Oshkosh faculty have organized a series of presentations and exhibitions to explore the impact of the Wall and new world order that was ushered in when it fell. The day's events combines background information about the Berlin Wall and the global implications of its fall in 1989 with first hand accounts of people who lived in Germany during this time. The day will end with the screening of a compelling German movie about dangerous attempts to escape from East to West Berlin.
