Finding Prora

Berlins history extends through the whole of Germany. Sometimes the leftovers of a collective past can still be found all over the country. In this case, Prora makes quite an impression. Fellow photographer Andreas Bohlender generously let us publish his editorial and beautiful pictures of the abandoned Nazi holiday camp that never was. Thank you for your amazing contribution.

Charité Campus Mitte

There is a spot amidst the city's heart that measures 180.000 m2, has its own street map, its own transportation system and, as some say, its own governmental structures with councils, committees authorities. Within a stone's throw of Hauptbahnhof, Friedrichstraße and the government district lies Campus Mitte of Berlin's university hospital Charité. Forming a little universe, the somewhat isolated Charité has its own history and its own stories to tell. Since the faculty is my alma mater, I roamed the historical campus to see what I may find.
