Doc Zone Berlin: 20 Years After

Doc Zone Berlin: 20 Years After

Doc Zone looks at the aftermath of a historic shift that changed the world's political landscape forever. It was a completely unexpected event, a dizzying moment shared by millions across the world. The fall of the Berlin Wall meant the destruction of the symbolic divide between East and West. The Cold War was over and had suddenly become the site of a jubilant and seemingly never-ending street party. A country had been freed, a people reunited. Communism was dead. All without a single shot. Berlin: 20 Years After takes a fresh look at the fall of the Berlin Wall using previously unseen archival material and contemporary accounts. Find out how today's generation sees Germany in a completely different light than those who lived through the Cold War.
