Dear Friends of Let's talk about Germany, 

I am so thrilled to be able to celebrate my 10th anniversary of lecturing in the USA! What started out as one single lecture on the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall evolved into a repertoire of more than 30 topics, all pertaining to the history, culture, and society of my home country! Thank you all so much for your continued interest in my work! I can promise you that I won't slow down in 2019! There is way too much happening that needs to be talked about. The main event will, of course, be the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. For this occasion I am offering three different presentations: 

the classic : The Rise and Fall of the Berlin Wall 

the fascinating : Everyday Life in East Germany -- A look across the Border 

the brand new : Berlin at 30 -- Celebrating the Fall of the Wall 

We will also celebrate the 70th anniversary of the unforgettable Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949 which is still considered to be the greatest relief operation in aviation history! My program Operation Freedom - The Berlin Airlift pays homage to the thousands of American and British Airmen and Women who made this tremendous event happen. In addition to that, the 56th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's seminal visit to Berlin in 1963 and the Airlift anniversary provide us with the perfect opportunity to look at the state of German -American relations! (the program titles are: John F. Kennedy in Berlin: Revisiting a momentous trip! and Reflections on 250 years of German American Relations!)

On the political stage, Germany's domestic affairs have been in the news quite a bit lately. In order to make sense of it all, I am offering a number of fascinating current event programs

brand new: Checking in on Germany's current affairs 

brand new, coming this Spring: From Guest Workers to Citizens: the Turkish Minority in Germany
