Tracing the City


Berlin is unique as a city – in itself the destination – visited not so much for any specific sites, but because of its texture, tears, seams and stitching. As a site of remembering and disseminating European history the 1930’s through WWII it is unparalleled, but the smooth narrative presented from the fall of Berlin until today belies a more contested and murkier tale.
