Online session on the Fall of the Berlin Wall

September 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us online and contribute with your own sources and research

Building on the success of our crowd-sourcing approach on the global reaction to the events in revolutionary Russia 1917-1923, we now invite interested individuals to contribute with their own sources on a more recent, but equally momentous, event in European history.

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of what has come to be known universally as “the Fall of the Berlin Wall”. Historiana will commemorate this by producing a transnational, multiperspective Source Collection. The Collection will provide content and learning materials which history teachers will be able to use when they and their students are examining the end of the Cold War era.

With so many people who lived through the events of 1989 – on both sides of the Iron Curtain – still alive and kicking, we hope to learn more about what these events meant to for the average citizen.

How do I contribute?

If you are interested in the events of 1989, and specifically the Fall of the Berlin Wall and its impact on Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, and would like to contribute to our Source Collection, we kindly invite you to join our online Historiana Contributors’ Meeting on 5th September at 17:00 CEST.

The webinar will feature an introduction to our crowdsourcing approach along with a set of key questions relating to the events of 1989. This will be followed by a short guide on the kinds of sources that the project would benefit the most from.

For more information, please read the background note by Historiana editor-in-chief Bob Stradling, here.


We look forward to meeting you online – please register here.
