We Love Berlin

LovBerlinHalf

Autumn in Berlin

Berlin, Germany is a city that has three distinct personalities. The first is tied to its role in Nazi Germany/Third Reich (1933-45), in which Germany was a fascist totalitarian state under Adolf Hitler that controlled all aspects of life and whose central feature was the Holocaust (11 million murdered, 6 m Jews, 5 m non-jews). Second, there is Cold War East Berlin (1949-90) and the Berlin Wall (1961-89), the Soviet communist sector of Berlin established after WWII,  and finally the “New” Berlin, a city that has and continues to develop into a vibrant, gritty, eclectic city which has become a must see destination for foodies, partiers, and music/art/culture lovers the world over.

What follows is a selection of pics I took in Oct 2013 during a (much too) short family visit to Berlin. Hopefully we will get back there soon.
