25 Years Later – The Fall of the Berlin Wall

The UWM German program invites you to “25 Years Later,” an evening commemorating the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Beginning at 6pm on November 9, 2014 in Curtin Hall 175, we will offer an evening dedicated to the event’s history and continuing significance.

In addition to a documentary film on the wall, the evening’s program will feature panel of speakers who will share both personal and professional perspectives on the wall. Two speakers (Eveline Kehlert and Fabian Klein) will share their lived experience, while two others (Dr. Winson Chu and Sigurd Piwek) will discuss the wall’s significance from historical and pedagogical perspectives.

Come join us in commemorating this important anniversary! The event is free and open to the public.

This event is co-sponsored by the Goethe House Wisconsin.
