Elke Ertle, will discuss the factors that led to the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 and the dynamics that brought it down in 1989. Elke, born and raised in West Berlin, was fifteen years of age on that summer day in August when construction of the Wall first began. She vividly recalls how West Berliners, whose city was no more than a tiny capitalist island within a large communist sea, were terrified of winding up behind the Iron Curtain. Elke will end the discussion by reading a brief excerpt from her memoir,

Dr. Gross volunteered on his first archaeological projects as a high school student in 1968, and although he has worked outside San Diego, he has been involved in local archaeology ever since. In his presentation he will reflect on the changes that have happened in the last 50 years - how archaeology has been done, by whom, what we have learned, and what ideas have been discarded.

3:00 PM Concert: History & Art of Japanese Drumming The free Discovery Concert Series presents Taiko: The History and Art of Japanese Drumming. Buddhist Temple of San Diego (BTSD) Taiko is an intergenerational taiko group (one of our families has three generations and several have two) made up of members of the Buddhist Temple of San Diego. The temple practices Jodo Shinshu Buddhism and has been a place of cultural preservation for Japanese and Japanese Americans in San Diego since 1926. BTSD Taiko was originally founded in the 1980s and after a hiatus the group reconvened in 2007. The goal of its drumming is not necessarily perfection for performance, but to put into practice mindfulness, oneness and gratitude. BSTD Taiko has performed at numerous community events including local festivals, cultural celebrations and library programs. The Discovery series of concerts at the library serves to educate the public about various music forms and to expand the opportunity for local musicians to perform and provide insights to their music.
