Return to Berlin

Monday 18 July 2005 18:05-18:35 (Radio 3)

Professor George Brandt was born in Berlin, and returned to the city as a guest of its mayor under a scheme that provides a gesture of reconciliation to exiles around the world.

The trip is a moment of emotional and intellectual reckoning, as well as an opportunity to lay the past to rest. Professor Brandt remembers his Berlin childhood which ended with his abrupt departure as a young teenager in 1933, and he reflects on the experience of the Berliner in exile.

Duration:

30 minutes
