Stars in the sky of Berlin

I was visiting my dad in Strasbourg when the Berlin Wall fell. He saw it on TV and recognised it as a historical moment right away. He took me and my two sisters, started the car and drove straight to Berlin with us. I was four years old back then....

It’s more than just a job
