Reception @KSL Marks 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall
Kelvin Smith Library hosts an informal reception commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9,1989, partnering with Department of Modern Languages & Literatures German Studies to recognize the anniversary of the opening of the Berlin Wall.
Those who are old enough to remember the fall of the Berlin Wall also recall it as the end of the Cold War, and the Monday reception is an opportunity to bring together people to share memories and learn more about one of the most significant events of the 20th century.
Join others on Monday, Nov. 9 from 4-6:00 p.m. in the KSL Lower Level International News Commons to recognize the 20th anniversary and to pause and remember the event, share experiences, and learn more about it through images, video, texts, and conversations. Light refreshments will be served.
