The German-American Cultural Center–Library presents: The inner German border during the Cold War

November 17, 7:30 p.m. at the STV Library 📚

Entrance is free; donations are appreciated for snacks and beverages.
Our speaker, Jeffry Cannon, was a member of the U.S. Army during the 1970s, and was stationed in West Germany as a border guard on the Inner German Border–the borders between West and East Germany, as well as the border between West Germany and Czechoslovakia.  

His presentation will cover the history of the border, when and why it was created, and show photographs of what the border looked like and how it was constructed.  He will also include photos and information about the Berlin Wall, which encircled the western portions of the German national capital for more than 25 years.
