Berlin: A place of struggle for freedom, tolerance, internationality and cosmopolitanism

A place of two dictatorships in the 20th century, the short age of extremes, today's Berlin stands for new beginnings, internationality, tolerance, cosmopolitanism and freedom. Cities like Berlin are places of progress, social innovation and emancipation. Fights for social change have always been fought in them. As a melting pot and incubator of diverse lifestyles, Berlin has become a place of longing for social change in the present and again and again historically, as in the 1920s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The events take you on a journey through history and the present.
