2023 marks the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s epoch-making visit to Berlin. For almost 45 years the German Metropolis, divided by a 98-mile-long concrete wall, was synonymous with the Cold War in Europe.
Join German historian Anette Isaacs for a fascinating look back at this special Wednesday in June of 1963 that was so tremendous that it inspired the President to turn to his aide Ted Sorensen and say: “We’ll never have another day like this one, as long as we live.”
Anette Isaacs is a German Historian and Public Educator who has been presenting hundreds of programs pertaining to her home country's history, society, and culture in Chicagoland and South Florida.
