With the construction of the Berlin Wall, begun on Aug.13, 1961, the course of Germany’s and especially of Berlin’s history took a tragic turn. It would take 28 years, on Nov. 9, 1989, to tear down this cruel and inhuman symbol of the Cold War, thus giving way to a joyous re-unification just a year later. German historian and Evanston resident Anette Isaacs, M.A. presents the audience with a historical and political overview of this very painful but also almost miraculous period in Berlin’s captivating history.
