Tom Hodson sits down with Director Professor Doctor Gunther Heydemann

On this episode of Conversations from Studio B, host Tom Hodson speaks with Professor Dr. Gunther Heydemann, who is also the director of the Hannah Ardendt Institute in Dresden, Germany.

Heydemann has been involved with the 20-year partnership program between Ohio University and the University of Leipzig, which offers an exchange program for second and third year students to study the German language, arts, and culture.

Heydemann's lecture on "The Difficult Road from Dictatorship to Democracy: The Delayed Revolution of 1989 at the University of Leipzig" speaks about the state of Germany after World War II, the type of revolution that Germany experienced, and the role that the city of Leipzig played.

Here's a video preview of the conversation.
