The Berlin Diaries, 1940-1945, Book Review
Life, revolutions and war changed Marie (Missie) Vassiltchikov’s predestined comfortable and privileged future, from that of a beautiful, spirited "White Russian" princess in Tsarist Russia to aristocratic, but penniless, refugee wandering Europe. Ending in Berlin during WWII.

The Berlin Wall, Germany Remembers
East Germany began building a wall across Berlin on August 13th 1961, and while it existed the Berlin Wall defined the cold war and division of Europe. November 1989 the exits were opened by government decree, and families who had been separated for decades could be reunited.

The Brothers Grimm
Once upon a time there were two very dissimilar brothers, whose combined talents produced world famous European folk and fairy tales that are anything but sweet and gentle bedtime stories. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.

The German American Experience
Perhaps because German Americans stem from a mixed community that settled in the USA over a wide span of time, they assimilated quickly into their new homeland, and using their skills, discipline and different talents, household names or unknown, they had an enormous influence on American society.

The German Stork Route
Germany's Stork Route crosses many other scenic and historic tourist routes in the north and east of Germany, and it comes to life towards the end of March. Its spectacular Stork's nests are then filled by breeding pairs and their young until September, when they fly to their winter grounds.

The Modern Car, It All Began With Benz

The Rhine River In Flames Festival
Rhein in Flammen is a unique and spectacular annual "Fire, Water, Light and Culture Festival". The first is in May, then each display has its own theme as it continues for five Spring, Summer and Autumn days along a beautiful, historic stretch of Germany's Rhine River.

Three Kings Day Cake Recipe
Dreikönigstag, Epiphany, brings an end to the Christmas season. In many regions of Germany, and German speaking countries, one of the day's traditions is a King's Cake with the crowning as "King for the Day" for whoever finds the Christkind figure, or dried white bean, in their portion.

Three Kings Day, Epiphany in Germany
January 5, Twelfth Night, is followed by "Dreikönigstag" - Three Kings Day. Epiphany, and in Germany those final hours of the Advent and Weihnachten season, and ending to Christmas celebrations, are a mix of Tradition, Charity, Religion and Folklore.

Traditional German Christmas Cookie Recipes
Weihnachts Plaetzchen, another of Germany’s Christmas traditions. Holiday cookie recipes vary from region to region, family to family, but few homes will be without their favorite Weihnachtskekse during Advent and the 12 days of Christmas. Pots of Love and Coconut Chocolate Macaroon recipes.
