Journalist Roy Gutman covered fall of the governments of Poland, East Germany and Czechoslovakia and the opening of the Berlin Wall.
He was in East Berlin when people began denouncing election fraud.
“I was on the edge of a revolution,” he said. “This is what real news is like. Real news blows your mind. It’s something you couldn’t imagine happening.”
Gutman spoke at Flagler College on March 12 as part of the college’s Forum on Government and Public Policy. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in international reporting “for his courageous and persistent reporting that disclosed atrocities and other human rights violations in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.”
