After a failed attempt to secure freedom for East Berlin in 1953, the communist government sealed off the eastern half of the city. In 1961, the German Democratic Republic began construction of the infamous Berlin Wall that stood in place until 1989. The presenter, Tom Schwartz, first went to Germany in 1961 as an exchange student so he was there when the wall went up. He received a BA in German from Indiana University and a MA in German Language and Literature from University of Pittsburgh. Program is offered by the E.B. and Bertha C. Ball Center in association with Westminster Village.
