The end of the Berlin Wall

16 Hydref 2009

Globe showing Europe

Students and staff from Central and Eastern Europe are being offered the chance to attend a civic event at Cardiff’s City Hall from 5.30 - 7pm on 17th November to help commemorate 20 years since the collapse of the Berlin Wall.

The fall of the Berlin Wall was a historic event in modern Europe, especially for those countries that lived under Soviet control. The subsequent economic, social and political integration of Europe has brought about lasting change across the continent.

To help mark the event, The European Commission (EC) Office in Wales and Cardiff Council are hosting an event and are encouraging University students and staff - especially those from former Soviet bloc countries or with expert knowledge of the events - to attend.

The University has a long tradition of attracting students from across Europe and the event will be of particular interest to those who have come to Cardiff to study and work from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and, of course, Germany itself.

The number of places available are limited and anyone who is interested in attending should contact either Gareth Newell, Head of International Policy, Cardiff Council on 029 20 873723 or e-mail: or Amanda John, Senior International Officer, Cardiff Council on 029 20 872680 or e-mail: to confirm their attendance.
