Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, this discussion will explore the effects of this momentous event which perhaps more than any other single occurrence has come to epitomize the change of the world order at the end of the 20th century. With interviews gathered from a longitudinal study with former East German activists, from a new Finnish non-fiction book on everyday life in East Germany, to a discussion of lives lost at the Berlin Wall, this event will explore the significance of the fall of the Berlin Wall three decades later.
The speakers are Professor Pertti Ahonen, University of Jyväskylä, Professor Molly Andrews, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies and Kati Koivikko, journalist, photographer, nonfiction writer. The event is hosted by Kaisa Kaakinen, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies.
