About the Lecture

Cline, an escape artist in his own right, will be talking about some of the most memorable escapes from East Germany over the Berlin Wall. Cline will tie together stories using his own knowledge of planning impossible escapes (see below). #FunFact: Cline was recently commissioned by the Marshall Museum to design and construct the replica section of Berlin Wall currently on display in the lower gallery alongside The Cold War Legacy exhibit.
