November 9, 2009 celebrated 20 years since the Berlin Wall was torn down. Long a symbol of isolation and contention, the Berlin Wall now symbolizes hope, change and unity. George Mason University remembered that year with numerous events to celebrate the unification of East Germany and West Germany, and the peaceful change that can happen throughout the world.
In the fourth campaign of its kind, more than 6,000 students at 25 colleges and universities across the United States will discuss the current state and possible future roles of the close and vital relationship between the United States and Germany as well as Germany within Europe during this fall semester in the “Think Transatlantic Campus Weeks.”
