   schema:description "Presenting the spirit of Berlin, this book is a photographic journey into the city's history. Devastated by two world wars, divided during the Cold War, and liberated with the destruction of the wall, Berlin has survived extraordinary circumstances over the course of its history and emerged as a center of European power and culture. From 1860 to the present day, this book presents the story of Berlin in photographs, portraits, maps, and aerial views. With nearly 700 pages of emotional, atmospheric images, this is the most comprehensive photographic study on Berlin ever made. More than a tribute to the city and its history, this book especially pays homage to Berlin's inhabitants: full of hope and strength, in their faces is reflected Berlin's undying soul. Also included is: an index of photographers' biographies."@en ;
