Due to the ongoing government shutdown, the Berlin Symposium scheduled for October 16 at the National Archives Building has been postponed.  Once the government reopens, we will post a new date for the symposium here.

NOTICE

by on October 1, 2013


 

Due to the Federal Government shutdown, the National Archives (www.archives.gov) is closed. We are unable to post or participate in any of our social media channels during this closure. All National Archives facilities are closed, with the exception of the Federal Records Centers and the Federal Register until the Federal government reopens.



On October 16, 2013 at 0900 a.m. the National Declassification Center at the National Archives, in partnership with the Historical Review Program of the CIA, will host a one-day symposium at the McGowan theater at the Archives building in downtown Washington, D.C. to tell the story of the people of East Berlin and their struggle for freedom. The symposium will highlight newly published and released declassified documents that reveal the human struggle for life and death in the shadow of the wall. The documents detail the many aspects of life focusing on the resolve of the human spirit for freedom and equality.  With his iconic speech on June 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy united the citizens of Berlin with the United States by his statement that “he too was a Berliner.” Twenty-four years later when visiting Berlin, President Ronald Reagan declared in his speech that “…Yet I do not come here to lament. For I find in Berlin a message of hope, even in the shadow of this wall, a message of triumph.” 

We have gathered on DVD just under 3,000 newly declassified documents on various topics and activities on Berlin from 1962-1986.  The 3,000 documents represent only a portion of the actual release of 12,000 pages in our total release. We have covered the period between two of the most famous speeches by the visiting American presidents Kennedy and Reagan. Included in this joint publication are newly released documents that recorded the life and death struggle with the quest for freedom and the triumph of the human spirit.
