About the Talk  

While political scientists and historians often follow the great and the powerful, this presentation will consider the average resident caught up in war, revolution, aerial bombardment, inflation, tyranny, the Holocaust, occupation, and division. How did average people survive, and how did they sometimes meet their deaths in the downtown area of Berlin, designated today as Mitte, while all of this went on around them? 

This talk is free, and all are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
