Stolpersteine 90: In memory of Johanna Lichtenstein (Samariterstrasse 29) in Berlin

Stolpersteine 87 – 90

I have added the photos of the Stolpersteine I have seen over the past week to the photo gallery here.

Curry 66

It has been a while since I blogged about eating Currywurst but rest assured I haven’t fallen out of love with this Berlin snack.  I’ve just been less adventurous for a while and stuck to some familiar haunts and then when I did try somewhere new I got caught up with some other posts.  I […]

Yesterday, I set out from home with no plan other than to make the most of the sun and get a bit of fresh air.  I just wandered.  And I ended […]
