From time to time I begin to search for some hints we could give our foreign-language fans. I search for information about the GDR in general, the Berlin Wall or about some specific topics like the year 1989 or so. It is really interesting how many institutions deal with the GDR and how many of them offer this information in foreign languages, above all in English. But not only German institutions are concerned with the topic GDR. Today I want to present you a homepage of the BBC which deals especially with the Berlin Wall.
You can find there general information about the Wall and extra recommendable the BBC offers a lot of videos about it. There are a lot of videos to different themes around the Berlin Wall. For example one about “The fall of the Berlin Wall” or “How the Berlin Wall divided the city”. Thus the interested user can inform itself about every detail regarding the history of the Wall.
Beside these videos you can find various links to other BBC History pages, for example one about the Cold War, and to other English homepages which deal with the Berlin Wall and the GDR, too. So the BBC offers a lot of interesting and helpful service for those who want to know more about the GDR and first of all about the Wall.
Special proposals are the radio broadcasts you can also find on the BBC history page. They deal also with the topic GDR or with related topics which are interesting, too, in relation to the GDR.
I think the BBC history page is a really good one. Not only for experts, but also for those who are interested in GDR history. Especially the animated pictures are impressive.
