What Do Walls Mean to You?

30 years after Berlin Wall falls, student comments on Department wall

November 9, 1989 marked the fall of the Berlin Wall that divided East and West Berlin for 28 years. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of this momentous event in Germany history, the German Department invited students, faculty and staff to share their thoughts – in any language – about what walls mean to them.

An entrance-way to the German Department was covered with paper to capture these comments. Additional images of our wall and comments can be found on our Facebook page.
