The Berlin of Joseph Roth
The new group „Discovering Berlin through Literature” met in the Joseph-Roth-Diele, an authentic Berlin café located on 23 January 2017. The topic of the morning was „Berlin of Joseph Roth”. The famous German-Jewish author was one of the most sought-after writers in German feuilletons in the 1920s.
A special surprise awaited the members: our guest Michael Bienert. He is not only the editor of the book about Roth but also a well-known author, journalist and one of the most respected Berlin-experts in town. Being a likeable and outgoing man, he shared many interesting stories about Roth and responded to all questions. It was a great morning in a special place with pleasant company.
