Viewfinder: So Berlin


In Germany’s capital, every building tells a story. While on a walking tour through the former East Berlin, a brick facade caught Neilly Rose’s eye. Rose ’22 hung back from the group to snap this photo, which captures street art posters, shrapnel marks left over from WWII and a netting barrier that protects the sidewalk from falling masonry. Across Berlin, buildings like this one are being renovated, the slow march of gentrification accelerated to a sprint in just the last decade. Charles A. Dana Professor of German Studies and E. Craig Wall Jr. Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Humanities Scott Denham led the Berlin trip, one of several Humanities Program small group study trips abroad.
