This podcast—led and produced by Karl Hirt—examines our tour of the BlackBox Cold War exhibition at the Berliner Forum für Geschichte und Gegenwart. According to curator Dr. Jürgen Reiche, “The exhibition BlackBox Cold War depicts the division of Germany and Berlin in the context of the international block confrontation at the historic site of the 1961 tank confrontation.”
