“Why is Berlin special? Certainly not for its beauty or its state of preservation. Berlin in fascinating, rather, as a city of bold gestures and startling incongruities, of ferment and destruction. It is a city whose buildings, ruins, and voids groan under the burden of painful memories.”

(Brian Ladd, “The Ghosts of Berlin”)
