“The Berliners are unfriendly and reckless, gruff, and bossy. Berlin is odious, noisy, dirty, and grey; roadworks and congested streets wherever you go – but I’m sorry for everyone who does not stay here.”

Anneliese Bödecker, 1932 – 2015, Social worker and recipient of the Order of Merit of Berlin
