Let's Talk About Germany: The Rise and Fall of the Berlin Wall
It has been 25 years since the Fall of the Berlin Wall, that insurmountable icon of the Cold War. With its rise on August 13th 1961, the course of Germany's and especially of Berlin's history took a tragic turn. It would take 28 years, until the 9th of November 1989, to tear down this cruel and inhuman 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 very painful but also almost miraculous period in Berlin's captivating history.    

This event is Free and Open to the Public.
MB Financial Bank at Western & Gunnison is generously donating parking for this event.
DANK Haus is located  block from the Western Brown Line stop.
