Kampfner John Colour Lucy Thomson

No other city has had so many lives, survived so many disasters and has reinvented itself so many times. No other city is like Berlin.

Over a four year period, John Kampfner walked the length and breadth of Berlin, delving into the archives, talking to historians and writers, architects and archaeologists, clambering into the fallen statue of Lenin and rummaging through boxes of medieval bones to uncover the story of a remarkable city. Kampfner’s In Search of Berlin tells the tale of the city’s past 800 years, a time in which the German capital has undergone plague, fire and war and has had to start again each time it has been destroyed. Every era of its history has shaped what Berlin is today, a global, multi-cultural city and a destination for refuge and culture.

Chaired by Fiona Shaw.
