Description

During the 20th Century, few cities had a more tumultuous history than Berlin. While political scientists and historians often follow the great and the powerful, this presentation will consider the average resident caught up in war, revolution, aerial bombardment, inflation, tyranny, the Holocaust, occupation, division, and unification. How did average people survive, and how did they sometimes meet their deaths in the downtown area of Berlin designated today as Mitte while all of this went on around them?
