On Friday the 17th March a small but select group of U6 students went to Boston Grammar School to participate in a Sixth Form German Workshop on Life in the GDR and Memory Landscapes. Presentations were given on a variety of topics by Dr Anna Saunders of Bangor University and Dr Sara Jones of Birmingham University. They included a whistle stop tour through the rise and fall of the GDR, the history of the Stasi, the portrayal of the GDR in Film and samples of socialist/communist memorials in Berlin. There was also time to discuss some issues in small groups, of course in German. The day was not only informative but also provided food for thought and was enjoyed by all.
