Hope M. Harrison - After the Berlin Wall: Memory and the Making of the New Germany, 1989 to the Present — in conversation with Charles King

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 10, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Known as the Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart by East Germans and dubbed the Wall of Shame by the West’s Willy Brandt, the Berlin Wall stood from 1961 to November 9, 1989. Thirty years after its fall, this literal and figurative Iron Curtain continues to occupy a complicated place in German collective memory. In her history of how Germans have commemorated the Wall, Harrison, associate professor of history and international affairs at George Washington University and author of the award-winning Driving the Soviets up the Wall, draws on hundreds of interviews and extensive archival research, profiling memory activists and considering a wide range of Wall commemorations such as memorials, trials, public ceremonies, films, and music.
