Thirty years ago Berlin’s wall came down. I was working in Germany when that happened from 1989-1992. After a nightshift at the military hospital, I went home to watch the news on the Armed Forces Network. It seemed surreal to visualize the East Germans and many others excitedly chiseling the stone wall away!
On my recent trip to Berlin, it was with the wall in mind that I began another day exploring my mother’s hometown. In my last post , I gave the tip to spend at least two days in the Mitte area. Tip two is to look at Berlin through the eyes of history.
