Berlin carries with it the stigmata of a dark and heavy history visible throughout the city. For example, next to the Brandenburg Gate one of the steles dedicated to the Shoah, the Holocaust-Mahnmal, built in 2003 and composed of 2,711 concrete blocks. But also the center of Terror Topography dedicated to documentation on the planning and execution of the crimes of the Gestapo, the SS and the Security of the Third Reich near the Martin-Gropius Bau, not far from Potsdamer Platz. The Cold War and its wall of shame in the Prenzlauerberg district on the site of Mauerpark. Checkpoint Charlie, one of the old Berlin border crossings and, of course, Trabant car folklore, a symbol of the German Democratic Republic's bankruptcy. Berlin is a young capital, in motion, a place where 190 nationalities intersect or abound all the trends of postmodernity: plastic art and cinema, architecture, theater, dance and street art. The artists and creators who flock there assert that Berlin is the equivalent of the New York of the years 1960-1970 ... The golden age!
