a walk through former Nazi neighbourhood

During the past week, I have been posting photographs of historic homes located in Berlin. They were built by Hitler’s Nazi regime for SS officers and their families in Zehlendorf. Situated in an idyllic forest setting along the shores of a lake, this tranquil neighbourhood, now known as Waldsiedlung Krumme Lanke, is a very appealing suburb on the west side of Berlin.

One thought on “a walk through former Nazi neighbourhood

  1. Have enjoyed this series tremendously. The Haute Vitrine commentary is always informed; this series has pushed me to do further research on Zehlendorf and modernist. I discovered that Richard Neutra, with whom I was formerly familiar, had also done work in Zehlendorf. Can’t wait to walk this district when I get back to Berlin in 2013.
