Few cities in Europe have undergone as many transformations as Berlin in the past 100 years, or have risen from the rubble to stand as proud and vibrant as the city does today. Nick Gay's book shows the effects of Hitler's building plans of the 1930s, Allied bombing in World War II, and the post-war division of the city into East and West and the subsequent reunification after 1989. Sites include: Brandenburg Gate, Pariser Platz, Hotel Adlon, the Reich Chancellery, Ministry of Aviation, Unter den Linden, Royal Opera House, Neue Wache, Berlin University, Palace Bridge, Lustgarten, Berliner Dom, Rotes Rathaus, Nikolaiviertel, Alexanderplatz, Muhlendamm, Gendarmenmarkt, Checkpoint Charlie, Wertheim Department Store, Potsdamer Platz, Death Strip, SS Headquarters, Anhalter Station, Siegessaule, Soviet War Memorial,Tempelhof Airport, Charlottenburg Palace, Olympic Stadium, Spandau Prison, and Wannsee Conference Villa. Berlin: Then and Now features the dramatic changes in the city wrought by the Nazi building program, Allied bombing, Cold War division, and the post-reunification building boom. Highlights include the major tourist destinations in the city from the Brandenburg Gate to the 1936 Olympic Stadium and the Berlin Airlift museum. A bilingual edition, English text sits side-by-side with Corinna Duemler's German translation.
Nick Gay is the cofounder of Original Berlin Walks, offering guided walking tours in and around the city. Nick is often in demand as a guide for his extensive knowledge of Berlin in the Third Reich and during the Cold War.
