JCC: THE FALL OF BERLIN WALL (1989-1990)

In the aftermath of the 2nd World War, within the Allies occupied Germany, an inner border and a wall was erected. Standing between 1961-1989; Berlin Wall has divided the people of Germany, both physically and ideologically. This unnatural yet real phenomenon, separated and alienated a generation of the people of Germany. Still to this day, regarded as a symbol for the bipolarity and division that was the Order of the Cold War. Manoeuvring within the macrocosm of landmines that is the International Political Sphere of the Cold War and working within and around this division; the cabinets of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) and the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) are going to try to navigate through the issues and crises that inevitably arise.

In the dawn of a breakthrough in the World Order; under the burden of the Cold War confrontations between major powers, the two cabinets are going to tackle the issues such as emigration, refuge, isolation and alienation. Defections, opposition against and pressures for the standing of the wall. Finally, against all the contradictions and barriers; there is a working in contrast, competition and cooperation, the two Cabinets are going to contemplate and communicate around an idea of German Reunification. Thus, trying to build a better future for their peoples.
