In this edition of Wilson Center NOW we speak with author Hope M. Harrison about her new book, After the Berlin Wall: Memory and the Making of the New Germany, 1989 to the Present. Drawing on an extensive range of archival sources and interviews, the book profiles German citizens who have fought to commemorate the history of the Berlin Wall and examines their roles in the creation of a new German national narrative for the 21st Century.
