Hanns-Josef  Ortheil - Our Trip to Berlin


The wonderful diary of a journey young Hanns-Josef Ortheil once took

In the early 1960s, Hanns-Josef Ortheil went to the divided post-war Berlin with his father. It is a journey back to the places where his father and mother used to live as a young couple during World War II. He listens patiently and with fascination to what his father is telling him of life in those days. He instinctively understands the significance Berlin had for his father's small family and still has for this man. The twelve-year-old records his impressions in his very own kind of diary and dramatically tells how the past became tangible for him as very young teenager.

After The Trip Along the Moselle, The Berlin Trip is Hanns-Josef Ortheil's second travel diary of his early years when he spent weeks travelling alone with his father in order to see, to write and to learn to speak for evermore.

"A wonderful book about being a child, about travelling, about emotional security and about feeling anxious with the unknown … It was written by the powerfully eloquent and sharp-minded writer Hanns-Josef Ortheil."

Denis Scheck on The Trip Along the Moselle
