Berlin's history comes alive in art

November 08, 2009

Regarding "New Memories of Berlin" by Nancy Hoyt Belcher [Nov. 1]. I traveled to Berlin by myself in late August and was totally unprepared for the vastness of the city as well as the friendliness of everyone I encountered.

My most outstanding experience, however, occurred when I visited three major art exhibits that documented life in Berlin (and Russia) before 1989 and after.

I was unaware of the impact on the residents of East Berlin, whose life and culture were essentially wiped out, not to mention the significance to the lives of West Berliners who were suddenly confronted with a culture they had never been able to view firsthand.
