On the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, author Hope M. Harrison talks about her new book, “After the Berlin Wall: Memory and the Making of the New Germany, 1989 to Present.”
The book examines how Germany has grappled with the history and legacy of the wall, from its fall in 1989 to the present, and examines how the country continues commemorating the history of the wall 30 years into a new national narrative.
Harrison, who also authored 2003’s “Driving the Soviets Up the Wall: Soviet-East German Relations, 1953-1961,” will also look back at the decision to build the wall in 1961 as well and what led to its fall in 1989.
Harrison is an associate professor of history and international affairs at the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University.
