On Friday, October 2, we had an exceptional online event to celebrate this momentous occasion. Thank you to guest speaker: eyewitness Mario Röllig!
We explored what Reunification means through the amazing eyewitness Mario Röllig, and had a special message from General Consul Südbeck:
Historically and emotionally, the topic of unification is even more relevant today.
Röllig lectures and gives tours at the Hohenschönhausen Memorial Museum, the former Stasi prison in Berlin, and is a member of the Association for the Victims of Stalinism (VOS).
Thank you as well to Stefanie Wenk from GISSV’s history department who organized and presented the event and prepared a video to give an historical overview, to our GISSV orchestras that played the German and European anthems, and Head of School Kathrin Röschel and Board President Cornelia Bohle-Neubrand for their words.
“30 years, 30 voices, 30 videos” - A Project by the German Consulates in the US
The consulate(s) will continue their online celebrations with a launch on October 4, of their "30 Years, 30 Voices, 30 Videos" campaign. Thirty people were chosen who play a vital role in promoting German-American friendship and offer a unique experience during Reunification. Our Head of School Kathrin Röschel is deeply honored to have been selected to participate as one of their "30". You can view a sneak preview of the video here. Each day they will release a new video on all of their social media channels. (Stay tuned on their channels here: Facebook / Instagram / LinkedIn.)
