Berlin – the Schöneberg neighborhood and the world at large – where once Emil and the Detectives went searching for clues; where Viktoria Luise, the daughter of the last German Kaiser, lived on the square that today bears her name; where 230,000 Russians sought safe harbor in the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution; and where long-gone Jewish neighbors are commemorated through small brass inlays in the pavement. What a privilege it is to live in such a historically rich and lively locale today! Berlin – the city where creative individuals find their freedom.
