The Cold War divided the world, leaving people on each side wondering what life was really like on the other side of the Iron Curtain. To shed light on the ways Cold War history impacted human lives, the Fiona Chalom and Joel Aronowitz Historical Human Witness Project has been gathering oral histories from those who lived in the Eastern Bloc during the period from 1945 to 1991. This event will be a live interview conducted at the Wende Museum.
