“Tear Down this Wall…”

For many of our students, 1989 means the year they were born. Others will recall that it’s the year the Communist block began to dismantle, making this year the 20th anniversary of Democracy’s spread into eastern Europe. What you may not know is that President Reagan’s infamous “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” speech actually happened on June 12th, 1987–more than two years before the Berlin Wall came down. Whether you want to learn a little bit more about the tensions between the east and the west or if you’re curious about what happened AFTER the wall came down, Rentschler Library has the resources you need.
