Today Penn professor Mitchell Orenstein was our Monthly Constitutional guest speaker. In preparation for the 8th grade’s visit to the Berlin Wall exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, DC, later this week, Mitchell spoke about the rise and fall of the wall. He talked about the lasting political and psychological symbolism of the Berlin Wall, and he touched on the differences between socialism, communism, and nazism.
