The History of the (Berlin) Wall: German Experiences for Arizona
The issue of the US/Mexico border, or any border today, is of central importance. This presentation takes the history of the Berlin Wall as a starting point to address what walls have done to people and cultures throughout time. Can the Berlin Wall help Arizonans understand the critical issues better? Even if that might not be the case, the history of that ominous wall and the cultural implications deserve our close attention. Presented by University of Arizona professor Albrecht Classen, College of Humanities. This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
