Paging Through Berlin

Berlin-lovers, here is the event for you: Our new book, The Berlin Wall Today, will be presented at Deutsches Haus of NYU, in New York City (by me). The book is about what is left of the Wall, admittedly not much, but still enough to walk the trail for one or two days. The remnants include original slabs of the Wall, graffiti-covered parts of the Hinterland Wall, which is a few hundred feet into the East, quite a few memorials, information steles, and five actual watchtowers. You can have a look into the book here. It will be available in English and German.

The event is free, it is on Tuesday, September 20, it starts at 6.30 pm and lasts for about one and a half hour (or so I believe). The location is Deutsches Haus, 42 Washington Mews, just north of Washington Square, near either the A/C/E and the B/D/F/M train at West 4 Street or the N/R at Eight Street.

Also presented is Kurfürstendamm, a new photo book by Stefan-Maria Rother, a Berlin-based photographer. This book was published by Berlin Story Verlag. Since both books are basically filled with pictures, we will be showing slides, and then have a debate about Berlin, led by Rachel Libeskind, the daughter of World-Trade-Center architect Daniel Libeskind. She grew up in Berlin.

So, I hope to see you all, and here is the link: Paging Through Berlin
