Topography of Terror Documentation centre Berlin highly informative

NOV 30, 2022, Topography of Terror Documentation Centre in Berlin Niederkirchnerstr.8:
Bill Niven, UK, University Nottingham/former senior Fellow at D-Munich Institute for Contemporary Historical Centre for Holocaust Studies, about Veit Harlan’s propaganda film of 1940:

the venue was packed with an audience of all ages and cultures, listening to Bill`s splendid presentation on whether or not to allow public viewing of JUD SUESS, NS propaganda film of 1940, viewed by 20 million Germans at the time!

My 99-year old friend Dr Inge Keller confirms that this was compulsory for all, being obliged to join large arenas and venues at schools, Universities and industrial premises. With Austrian – German actor Werner Krauss as the main character, audiences adored his charismatic self of being a dedicated Nazi, personally called upon by Hitler for his self-image of why he became an actor with a sadistic touch: … `ein Nazi und ein Schweinehund`.

Berlin Lahore in Autumn 2022

It is fun thinking of Lahore, city of noise and cars, food and digital innovation.

Lahore August 2022

Lahore is Pakistan’s second largest city, afterKarachi.

It is great fun commuting by auto-Rikshaw taxis (so-called ‚ChingChi‘, named after Chinese manufacturer Qingqi). Seated in rapid 3-seaters, I have not yet seen major accidents here that happen between cars, trucks and a motorized Rickshaw that replaced the earlier pulled Rickshaw. Continue reading

Women’s UEFA Cup Finals 2022

Here in Lahore, Pakistan, rarely anybody notices that women in Europe and all over the world play football. It is a pity that games here are mainly followed by the news.

Lahore Berlin July 2022

Downtown market place along Walled City of Lahore, Pakistan

Lahore, not Berlin these days, tells the story of its Walled City around the Fort of Moghul times. Today, this small downtown place hosts some 200 000 inhabitants of
a total of 12 million living in Lahore.

Tourists are of course rare in this heat of 35 – 44 C in July 2022.

Potsdamer Platz Encounters

Walking with my friend Ayshe whom I had met via NGOs in the field of migration and refuge at Freiwilligen-Agency Berlin Kreuzberg, the story of Berlin’s 1st ‘Ampel’, installed in 1924, refers to the traffic light system of former times. This is as new to her as the entire build-up around cinematic events along Berlinale: https://www.berlinstadtservice.de/xinh/Verkehrsampel_Potsdamer_Platz.html.
We both agreed that the ‘Walk of Stars’ in the middle path crossing Potsdamerstr. looks lousily abandoned – unlike the exhibition these days around “Die Deutschen des 21. Jahrhunderts” :-) = worth walking along and enjoying Potsdamer Platz this way!
