Day 16 of my Berlin diary. Day 1 is here.
This is the first day without plans. I may be a regular tourist!
Therefore I drink a beer in matching color to my jacket (Berliner Weisse with raspberry syrup).
Later I eat a Cold Dog (Kalter Hund), which seems to be a local speciality: Cookies embedded in dark chocolate. I will not order one again.
There are a lot of things I could complain about in Germany. How we deal with our past is not among them.
„Between 1933 and 1945, the central institutions of Nazi persecution and terror – the Secret State Police Office with its own “house prison,” the leadership of the SS and, during the Second World War, the Reich Security Main Office – were located on the present-day grounds of the Topography of Terror„.
