Berlin now : the city after the Wall by Peter Schneider( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A smartly guided romp, entertaining and enlightening, through Europe's most charismatic and engimatic city. It isn't Europe's most beautiful city, or its oldest. Its architecture is not more impressive than that of Rome or Paris; its museums do not hold more treasures than those in Barcelona or London. And yet, when citizens of "New York, Tel Aviv, or Rome ask me where I'm from and I mention the name Berlin," writes Peter Schneider, "their eyes instantly light up." Berlin Now is a longtime Berliner's bright, bold, and digressive exploration of the heterogeneous allure of this vibrant city. Delving beneath the obvious answers--Berlin's club scene, bolstered by the lack of a mandatory closing time; the artistic communities that thrive due to the relatively low (for now) cost of living--Schneider takes us on an insider's tour of this rapidly metamorphosing metropolis, where high-class soirees are held at construction sites and enterprising individuals often accomplish more without public funding--assembling a makeshift club on the banks of the Spree River--than Berlin's officials do. Schneider's perceptive, witty investigations on everything from the insidious legacy of suspicion instilled by the East German secret police to the clashing attitudes toward work, food, and love held by former East and West Berliners have been sharply translated by Sophie Schlondorff. The result is a book so lively that readers will want to jump on a plane--just as soon as they've finished their adventures on the page"--

Das war doch eigentlich vorbei. Für Witwer Roland, Privat-gelehrter mit Forschungsstipendium an der NYU, ist die Sache mit den Frauen eigentlich kein Thema mehr. Aber als er bei einer Trauerfeier in Manhattan Leyla begegnet, sieht plötzlich alles ganz anders aus. Roland glaubt genau zu wissen, was geht und was nicht. Und dass er drauf und dran ist, sich mit einer deutlich jüngeren Frau einzulassen, geht ganz bestimmt nicht. Allerdings sieht sie das ganz anders und bringt ihn dazu, sich in eine Beziehung zu werfen, die ein enormes Glückspotenzial besitzt, aber auch in unlösbare Konflikte führt. Während er zwischen seinem New Yorker Appartement und seinen Lehrverpflichtungen in Berlin hin- und herpendelt, hat er genügend Zeit, Leyla zu vermissen, seine Prinzipien infrage zu stellen und viel über die Liebe zu erzählen und sich von seinen Freunden erzählen zu lassen. So entsteht ein Beziehungspanorama, das äußerst überraschend, sehr lehrreich und extrem unterhaltsam ist

A biography of Konrad Latte, a Jewish musician born in 1922 in Breslau. With the rise of the Nazi regime, Latte was forced to transfer to a Jewish school and his father's business was Aryanized.

In March 1943, warned of impending deportation, the family fled to Berlin. They went into hiding assisted by Harald Poelchau, a Lutheran minister, and by friends in artistic circles. Latte studied with pianist Edwin Fischer, obtained work at the opera, and served as an organist in a church. In October 1943 his parents were arrested and deported to Auschwitz. Latte managed to avoid deportation; however, he was detained in prison, awaiting trial on suspicion of assisting deserters. He escaped during an air raid and survived with a false identity. After the war he remained in Germany
