2019 Commemoration of the Fall of the Berlin Wall
In order to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Professor Kevin Hula organized a brief panel discussion and movie event on November 9th, 2019 exactly thirty years earlier. Drs. Janine Holc, Moira Lynch, and Carsten Vala joined Dr. Hula to discuss the origins of the Cold War, divided Germany, the construction of the Wall in Berlin, the ambiguity of post-Wall justice processes, and the contemporary relevance for China's surveillance state, before showing the German film, The Lives of Others.
