Fall of Berlin Wall 30th Anniversary

November 9th marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. After its 1961 construction, the barrier symbolized the ideological Cold War divisions between East and West.

Guests include:

  • Hope Harrison, author of "After the Berlin Wall: Memory and the Making of the New Germany, 1989 to the Present"
  • Steve Vogel, who covered the fall of the wall for the Washington Post and author of "Betrayal in Berlin: The True Story of the Cold War's Most Audacious Espionage Operation"
  • Carrie Christoffersen of the Newseum, who'll talk about their Cold War Berlin exhibit, which includes the largest display of unaltered portions of the wall outside of Germany as well as an intact East German guard tower
