About me:

Growing up in West Germany, my move to West-Berlin coincided with the Fall of the Berlin Wall. It was an exciting time to be here, as for a brief moment in time, Berlin became the centre of the universe. Or so it felt. Day by day new events and developments unfolded, eventually leading to reunification of East and West in October 1990.

In 1995, I moved to London, and three years later to Paris, where I lived for 7 years. In 2005 I decided to go back to studying, eventually graduating with a Master’s Degree in European Cinema Studies from Bath University. Next, I was awarded a PhD bursary from Warwick University. Writing about the role of women in German-Jewish refugee organisation that emerged as a result of the rise of Hitler, I completed my PhD in January 2011. I have since briefly worked at Berlin’s Holocaust Foundation, worked as  archival researcher on two documentaries on the cinema of Weimar Germany, and eventually started working as a private tour guide for Berlin and Potsdam. In addition, I have contributed a number of essays to various publications. Most recently to Thomas Mann’s Los Angeles, edited by Benno Herz and Nikolai Blaumer.
