of Berlin. A photographic journey into the city’s history Berlin has survived two world wars, was divided by a wall during the Cold War, and after the fall of the wall was reunited. The city emerged
as a center of European power and culture. From 1860 to the present day, this book presents the story of Berlin in photographs, portraits, maps, and aerial views. More than a tribute to the city and its civic, social
, and photographic history, this book especially pays homage to Berlin’s inhabitants: full of hope and strength, in their faces is reflected Berlin’s undying soul. About the series: Each compact and dynamic
volume in TASCHEN’sPortrait of a City Piccolo series distills the vitality and history of each city into a billet doux packed with 150 photos accompanied by informative captions and inspiring quotations.
