With the rise of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the course of Germany’s—and especially of Berlin’s—history took a tragic turn. It would take 28 years (until 1989), to tear down this icon of the Cold War and cruel 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.
