Berlin Then and Now (Then & Now)

by

Berlin Then and Now (Then & Now) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Brandenburg Gate, seen in times of war and peace. The Kaiser Wilhelm memorial, once towering over a large square, is now long gone. The Berlin Wall, an icon of a divided city, now not much more than memory. The images of Berlin's history tell a story that moves from prosperity to chaos, ruin to restriction, before returning once again to stability and confidence.

In Berlin Then and Now, vintage black-and-white photographs from throughout the life of the city are seen next to amazing color photos of Germany's capital today. From the Charlottenburg Palace, more than two-thirds destroyed in World War II but lovingly restored today, to the Kroll Opera House, a luxurious building once used as a temporary hospital during wartime and whose site is now a beautiful park, the city's most remarkable sites show why Berlin has long fascinated historians and tourists alike.

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, he 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 he is often in demand as a guide for his extensive knowledge of Berlin in the Third Reich and during the Cold War.
