With only one course left to complete his MS in Accounting, Mark Lasser went into the darkest time of his life.

“Many small people, who in many small places do many small things, can alter the face of the world.” So reads an inscription on one of the remaining panels of the Berlin Wall, a barrier between East and West Berlin that stood for nearly three decades and became a symbol of a divided world.
