During the fall semester of 2019, students in three UMBC classes (MCS 495, GERM 301 and GERM 319) collaborated in creating digital stories commemorating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The stories are based on interviews of members of the UMBC and broader Baltimore communities who shared personal recollections of the events surrounding the collapse of the wall.
Additional videos will be added to this collection throughout the fall semester.
