Berlin sat at the heart of key historical events across the 20th century and was the focus for the confrontation between East and West. Today Berlin is a vibrant city, and the largest by population within the European Union.

Our expert guests will take us on a tour through the 20th century in Berlin, from the capital at the heart of democracy and dictatorship, to the building and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This webinar is ideal for all those with an interest in modern European History, or simply those making post-Covid travel plans to visit one of Europe’s most fascinating cities. It is also ideal for students studying German and/or History who are unable to visit the city on a school trip at this time.

The evening is hosted by the German and History Departments, who will bring their own experience of this city to the discussions. Questions from the audience are encouraged.

Chair: Harriet Rowling, Head of German
