Watched “Berlin in Farbe 1933-1939 – Zeitreise mit Stefan Aust” today, a documentary in color of Berlin 1933-1939. Adding color to a reality I´m accustomed comes in black and white, makes an interesting difference.
These two images are of U Nollendorfplatz, one old (1903) and one more recent. Remember this particular station, one morning on a vacation a few years back I was heading towards Wannsee and Potsdam from U Wittenbergplatz. Mornings are not when I sparkle, quickly realizing I was heading in the wrong direction and jumped off at U Nollendorfplatz. A man approached me on his way to a fair, asking for help getting to his destination. He was dressed in business attire, in my case it was one of those mornings (usually I get it right) neither I had everything under control. In Potsdam a deja vu happened, as the center faded away in the distance, on one public transportation ride. Funny thing, situations like these are those I remember the most.
