Growing Together Again
"Growing Together Again" tells the story of German and European unity more than a quarter of a century after the opening of the Wall. It begins in Berlin where the memory of East-West division runs deep and the drive to achieve a common European destiny remains a top priority. Since 2015 Europe's destiny has been challenged by a desire to put national interests in front of broader European goals. A surge in refugees from war-torn countries has prompted leaders in eastern Europe to bring back the border fortifications that many Berliners wanted to forget. But as hostility toward the refugees increases, a handful of notable people in Berlin are rising up against intolerance. Their mission is to bring people together and reinforce belief in the European dream.
