The Cornell German Department has received funding to organize a memorial week celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall! I am a part of the committee helping to organize the event, which will be happening from Sept. 22 through Sept. 26! We have several exciting events planned, including the construction of a replica wall on the Arts Quad complete with a graffiti competition and a public speaking event! We will also be screening films, hosting a panel discussion, and organizing a charity run. Anybody who is interested in actually participating in the public speaking event as a speaker, or in running in the charity run, should contact me. Otherwise, keep your eyes open at the end of this month!
