Berlin Then and NowBook - 2005
One of the most symbolic moments in modern history, the fall of the Berlin Wall resulted in the unification of East and West Germany and the designation of Berlin as the country's official capital. Berlin Then and Now offers a rare glimpse into a culturally and historically diverse city that is now one of the most exciting, vibrant and rapidly changing destinations in Europe. Filled with colour and black-and-white photographs, the book takes us from Stone Age to the city's "modern" history beginning in the 13th century when Berlin was founded as a trading post, and follows with the Industrial Revolution, World War I, Hitler's ascendancy and pre- and post-World War II.
