Researchers at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute of History study how residents of Berlin celebrated around 1900
Movies, dance, and theatre – the cultural metropolis of Berlin that we know today got its start about 100 years ago: As industrialization progressed, people streamed into the city from Germany and elsewhere, looking for work – and play. Where and how people celebrated in Berlin around 1900, and what people did for amusement in London or New York, is the subject of research by a group at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute of History at Freie Universität Berlin.
