Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hitlers ascendancy and defeat transformed a stable, confident Berlin into a ruined city, fractured by post-WWII political divisions. Only with the 1989 destruction of the Wall and the subsequent Unification Treaty did Berlin begin to regain its cosmopolitan standing as one of the worlds great cities. Experience the tumultuous events of the citys modern history through archival and contemporary photography that offers a rare glimpse of Berlins fascinating metamorphosis.

Synopsis:

With highlights that include "then and now" images of the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall, and Checkpoint Charlie, one can experience the tumultuous events of Berlin's modern history through archival and contemporary photography--a must-have for World War II history buffs.

About the Author

Nick Gay is a graduate of Cambridge University and spent much of this early life abroad. He moved to Berlin in 1991 and has been a resident ever since. In 1993, Nick and his partner Serena Gay founded Berlin Walks, a company offering guided tours in English in and around the city. The company now employs twelve guides in the summer and Nick is often in demand as a guide for his extensive knowledge of Berlin in the Third Reich and during the Cold War. He lives in Berlin.
