ONE PEOPLE, ONE EMPIRE - IN RUINS
Oliver intends to share some of the thoughts that ran through his head from his almost 20-year stint of having lived in Berlin during the years of the wall. Topics covered include but are not restricted to: resistance, denunciation, fate of stolen children, life in the underground, faked documents, and post-war ignorance. The session uses extracts from the book 'Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Trümmerhaufen' by Anja Tuckermann, (One people, one empire – in ruins). Oliver uses an interactive-based approach as part of introducing innovative learning techniques; participants receive the opportunity to share their own feelings and experiences.
