Before the Wall - John's Parents Marry in Berlin

by Off-Ramp

Today, Off-Ramp marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a trip deep into John Rabe's family archives. In this piece, filed for Savvy Traveler back in 1999, John traces his late mother's and father's footsteps in 1950s Germany. The piece, which John calls one of the best things he's ever done, includes rare audio from his collection, classified documents, and family letters that date back sixty or more years. Come inside for a link to the companion website that includes photos and more.
