And our eastern neighbors? Eastern Europe between Peaceful Revolution and Violence
The communist systems of rule in Central and Eastern Europe dissolved rapidly. These political and economic upheavals had common causes, but very different courses. 1989 changed Europe. The opening of the wall, the demonstrations in Prague, the shots of the Romanian secret police at citizens, the storming of Stasi headquarters illustrate this turning point.
As part of the exhibition opening and the conversation with Mirko Krizanovic and Tim Buchen, the incidents of that time are presented and discussed. At the same time, the development in Eastern Europe is also discussed from today's perspective.
Dr. Roland Löffler, Director of the Saxon State Center for Political Education, talks to:
Junior prof. Dr. Tim Buchen, junior professor for social and economic networks of Germans in Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries
Mirko Krizanovic, photojournalist
