The Transatlantic Outreach Program and the American Council on Germany host a lecture by Volker Bausch, director of Point Alpha Foundation and Point Alpha Academy since 2011. "Observation Post Alpha was one of several American border observation posts along the inner-German border," according to promotional materials. "Now a German national monument supported by the Point Alpha Foundation, Point Alpha is situated in the Fulda Gap, the strategic region in which a Soviet attack was expected at any time during the Cold War due to its proximity to the Rhein-Main Region."
