Nikita inspired us at https://www.visitberlin.de/en/event/long-night-museums-2023 with his sounds near the ‘room of silence’, letting us feel enlightened by how creation is fostered by sorrow and silence: thank you Nikita from Russia, having left your home to live refreshed in free movement here in D – Berlin.

berlinsights.de 14 July 2023: BEGINENHOF, D-10999 Berlin Kreuzberg with Sohel Rahman and his documentary The Ice cream Sellers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgVESYILtQg: some 20 co-owners and as many visitors enjoyed great dinner prepared by Sohel himself, and attended the film screening of his award-winning creative documentary ‘The ICECREAM SELLERS’. The ‘rural’ view of the largest refugee camp of one million people living, giving birth, generating income and sustaining – evoke my attention when witnessing the screening and discussion at Heinrich Böll Foundation (June 23, 2023). I was amazed, since I had been in the camp on behalf of UNHCR some ten years ago, before the 2017 (2nd) genocide of the Muslim Rohingya community let the Rohingya Muslim community take refuge again. This stalemate situation does not allow forgetting facts that had emerged as early as 1970 under the former military regime of Burma, now Myanmar. We can do more – let us discuss!

… it is getting warmer, day by day. We Berliners enjoy even freezing temperatures, yet sun and spring buds warm our hearts, and chill our souls. We all know Berlin is crowded with nations from all over the world, and this is our pride. We thank each and everybody for being here with us, please continue to come: welcome to Berlin!
… of course: Berlin Kreuzberg never asked for additional police presence at Kott-busser Tor, a square that rarely sleeps and that often prevails, despite social inequity and drunken Newberliners, here or there. Languages are as multiple as diverse needs and interests may appear throughout age, sex, identity and income. The latter is scarce for some, and futile for others. Police cannot help here, it is family – foreigners – friends who do, at least sometimes.
Listening to Dr. Lena Kreck (PhD, jur, DIE LINKE), Senator for Justice, Diversity and Antidiscrimination, it appears timely to take action against rightwing groups in Germany: according to news these days, Berlin`s Senate plans for disciplinary steps against judge Birgit Mahlmann-Winkelmann, in custody now according to RBB Info radio – Berliners trust their local Government!
