Berlin, the capital of reunified Germany, is a city with a glittering present and a dark past. A historian leads the viewer through the new Berlin, revealing the many traces of history in a city that served as Frederick the Great's, Bismarck's, and Hitler's capital before it became the front line of the Cold War and the place where the Berlin Wall was built and destroyed. Learn that there is more than meets the eye at the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, Nazi buildings, Jewish cemeteries, Checkpoint Charlie, and many other places steeped in history.
