Berlin GIVEAWAY! – a copy of ‘In the Full Light of the Sun’, and an Ampelmännchen tote bag

14th April 2019

In the Full Light of the Sun

WIN a copy of In the Full Light of the Sun by Clare Clark, an excellent and thought-provoking novel (based on a true story) set in 1930s Weimar Berlin – together with an iconic Ampelmännchen tote bag.

Do you know the story of Berlin’s Ampelmännchen?

.…From traffic light to iconic brand…. the little Ampelmännchen (literally meaning little traffic light man) is the symbol shown on pedestrian signals in Germany. Prior to German Unification in November 1989, the two German states had different forms. The East German figures became iconic (as opposed to their rather dull former West German counterparts) and now enjoy the privileged status of being one of the few features of the Communist East to have survived. Ampelmännchen shops in Berlin are ubiquitous and you can even buy Gummibärs, sink plugs or aprons with single or dual motifs….

 

HOW TO ENTER:

Just leave a comment below telling us which city you would most like to visit in GERMANY! Do this by midnight, 27th April 2019 and the first name out of the hat will be sent the book and tote! Good luck. And it’s INTERNATIONAL

    I would like to visit Hannover. I have been there before, when my daughter (who turns 40 this year) was born in the Army Hospital there, but as i lived many miles out in the countryside I never got chance to explore the city. A friend lives there now and shares lots of beautiful photos, so I’d love to see what i missed out on.
