Details

United City, Divided Memories? focuses on the basic question of how Berlin today deals with three specific Cold War era legacies: the presence of the four Great Powers, the East German Stasi, and the Berlin Wall. Dirk Verheyen studies monuments, museums, and memorial sites as illustrations of Berlin's struggle to craft an effective shared identity that ties together its western and eastern halves.
