reminiscence

Reminiscence paints a portrait of Berlin through its habitants’ viewpoint. At first the goal wasn’t as much to return to the lived history of this city, but to focus on its denizens’ contemporary metropolis. However, the Second World War and the Cold War quickly came up in conversations, even with the youngest participants. A wall separating the East from the West seems to still symbolically exist within a lot of Berliners’ consciousness.
