This event commemorated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Two leading East German dissidents, Siegbert Schefke and Uwe Schwabe, gave eyewitness accounts of their opposition activities which culminated in the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989. The discussion was chaired by prize-winning historian Mary Elise Sarotte, author of the recently published book "The Collapse: The Accidental Opening of the Berlin Wall." A reception followed in the CES Atrium.
