Real-Life Time Travelers

Bringing time travel into reality (well, virtual reality at least), YouTube today transports several people back 30 years to the fall of the Berlin Wall (November 9, 1989).

The half-hour Virtually History uses VR to take three young Germans to a time when their relatives were photographed escaping, resisting, and overcoming the wall. Concurrently, three YouTube content creators — the UK’s Hannah Witton, Ireland’s Riyadh Khalaf and Germany’s Rezo – also travel back to the streets of Berlin in 1989.The event is overseen by social historian Emma Dabiri.
