Author and photographer Matthias Koch presents his latest Union book with surprise guests

In 2006, the footballers of 1. FC Union Berlin were still playing in the 4th league. In 2019, the Köpenickers were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time. Now coach Urs Fischer's protégés are even playing in the Champions League.

Author Matthias Koch, who has accompanied the “Irons” as a reporter and photographer for almost a quarter of a century, has recorded the football crime story in a new and revised chronicle that follows on from 2013 (“Always further to the front”).

At the book launch, in conversation with contemporary witnesses and photos, he sheds light on the club's development before 1945, during the GDR era and the long path to the Bundesliga after 1990.

The theater is open from 6:30 p.m.
