Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin And Kreuzberg


Spotted in Urbanstrasse in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

Mein Milljöh by Heinrich Zille is one of the most faithful representations of the life in Berlin at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Bitter-sweet with a big serving of the typical Berlin black humour its cartoons make you laugh and at the same time choke on the sad truth they depict. Once you get to know Zille´s works you will never feel you have the right to complain about your own way of living again. Not in Berlin, anyway.

        During the time of the “Thousand Year Reich” Zille was on the list of forbidden books. But I’m proud to report, that my father kept his Zille book for us children to peruse.
