"When the last person who remembers the horrors of the last Great War dies, the next one becomes inevitable."
Or is it?
The Arrow of Time tracks the events leading up to and proceeding the fall of the Berlin Wall through the eyes of the cold warriors who played central roles spanning from World War II, to the Cold War and the post-Cold War arrangements between the United States, the former Soviet Union and Western Europe. Through it all we are reminded by nuclear holocaust survivor Setsuko Thurlow of the terrors of nuclear weapons and why we need to find international political arrangements that assure long-term peace and stability.
