Web Site of the Week: Making the History of 1989

1989 was a pivotal year in recent history, marking the fall of the Berlin Wall in Germany and other events throughout Europe that consumed the world’s attention. This fine collection from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University brings together historical documents in English that “convey the epochal events of 1989.” The collection has three key features, including high quality primary sources, a set of multimedia interviews, and lesson plans that provide historical context, tools and strategies for teaching the history of 1989. The gem here are the Primary Sources, consisting of over 300 items. It is a tremendously rich way to read government documents, images, videos, and artifacts, complete with introductory notes. [KMG]
