Itinerary

Starting at the Reichstag Building, our walk continues towards the iconic Brandenburg Gate. Next, we'll explore the stark yet in harrowingly beautiful Holocaust Memorial which is located in the centre of Berlin, between Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, which is next on our list of Berlin highlights to check out. This square went from Europe's busiest hub in the 1920s to becoming a virtual wasteland during Berlin's division, while today it is somewhat of a new centre, in addition to the 2 Berlin already has. After exploring the Sony Center we conclude our walk next to the spot where the infamous Berlin Wall divided the square into East and West.

Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, I lived abroad between 1994 and 2010, first in London and later in Paris, where I worked at Harrod’s, Saint Laurent, and Chanel. At the age of 40 I went back to studying, gaining an MA (with Distinction) in European Cinema Studies at Bath University. Next, I was being awarded a generous Vice Chancellor’s grant to do a PhD in Film Studies at the prestigious Warwick University.

After the successful completion of my PhD dissertation on German-Jewish exile organisations that emerged as a result of the rise to power by the Nazis, I was then offered to contribute to the exhibition “Eichmann on Trial”, organised by Berlin’s Topography of Terror. And so I was back in Berlin, re-discovering the city I’d left so long ago. Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, I lived abroad between 1994 and 2010, first in London and later in Paris, where I worked at Harrod’s, Saint Laurent, and Chanel.
