East Berlin by bike
Since his father was a diplomat, John Kerry lived in Berlin at the age of 12. With his bike he was travelling far distances, and also to East Berlin. With his diplomatic passport he came across the border to experience the eastern part of the separated city. ... to be continued ... Tonight, our festival director Nicolai Niemann was invited to the Department for Foreign Affairs / Auswärtiges Amt, Berlin.
With a glamorous award gala, the current german Minister for Foreign Affairs, Frank-Walter Steinmeier granted the Federal Cross of Merit to none other than the US Secretary of State John Kerry!
Our festival connects people all over the globe. And, referring to Kerry, since we´re all united, differences don´t tear us apart anymore!
