Events mark 25 years of German unity

102815Feature_GermanUnityThe UNCG German Program received funding from the German Embassy in Washington, DC, to participate in Campus Weeks 2015: 25 Years German Unity. The campaign commemorates the 25th anniversary of Germany’s reunification. On Oct. 3, 1990, East Germany and West Germany reunited to form a single nation. This historic decision marked the end of the unification process, which began with the fall of the Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1989. Through a variety of events, including lectures, campus competitions, and  a video shoot, UNCG’s German Program looks back not just at the joyful moments of Germany’s reunification, but also at 25 years of growing together.

Here is the series of events:
