Hey Emma,Reading about your experience is very cool! When you're in Berlin next, I recommend visiting Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum. You know, when I was in Berlin working on an exhibition in 1988 (when east was east and west was west), I took a bus trip through the Brandenburg gate. It was quite an adventure. Our guide in the east sought me out and wanted to chat with me about what the USA was like.Keep bloggin!!!NancyPS I'm doing research right now on an artist who was born in Allstedt.
