Fallen Walls and Human Chains: 1989 to Today

November 22, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Thirty years ago, the Berlin Wall fell. This one event was linked to so many others: an election in Poland, a dismantled electrified fence in Hungary, candlelit marches and a human chain of people joining hands up and down the Baltic states. Today, the events of 1989 are too often recalled as standalone climaxes. To reconnect the threads of this shared yet scattered experience, please join us for a conversation with guests Urszula Horoszko and Niels von Redecker from the Polish and German embassies in Washington, D.C.

The event begins with a bagel reception at 2:00 p.m.
