9th of November, 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the momentous day that caused ripples of change throughout the world. YouTube Originals brings you the chance to step back to a moment in history.
The past gets immersive. With the use of cutting edge VR technology, social Historian Emma Dabiri will transport three people to a moment when their relatives were photographed escaping, resisting, and overcoming the Berlin Wall. Concurrently, YouTube Creators Hannah Witton from the UK, Riyadh Khalaf from Ireland, and Rezo from Germany will, too, step into the virtual streets of past Germany. From the perspective of a new generation, brought up to count on their freedom, they'll need to consider how this piece of history is relevant today?
It’s crucial that we tell this story again to remind us that 30 years wasn’t that long ago.
