JCC Beyond The Wall: East Berlin 

Topic 1: The Berlin Problem & The Western Threat

Topic 2: Economy: Reestablishing Our Industry

Dearest Hanz,

I have received all of your letters, but I know none of mine are getting to you. The guards along the border make sure that nothing escapes these walls. We have been forced to collectivize our property and livestock and pledge ourselves to Communism. Mother seems to have converted, but I know the communist party only promises lies. I have seen the American airlifts, but the supplies are not enough to supplement our shortages. I heard rumors of escapes into West Berlin, but many people have been shot at the wall. I am still looking at fleeing so we can reunite at last. Hopefully this message will find you safety.

Love,

Fritzchen

Charlie Goldman - Crisis Dircetor

My name is Charles Goldman, and I will be the Crisis Director for the JCC Beyond the Wall: East Berlin. I am currently a senior at Boston University, where I major in International Relations. I have been doing Model UN since high school, and this will be my fourth time acting as a Crisis Director, and I am very excited for this year’s BOSMUN. This committee will place you in the midst of the Cold War, in one of the most significant locations for the conflict between the United States and the U.S.S.R. I look forward to seeing all of you this spring, and helping you truly experience life beyond the wall.
