This 50-min webinar in the form of a Powerpoint presentation aims to give the viewer an overview of the German Resistance during the Nazi years: the various groups that sprang up over the years as well as individual people acting on their own. Their objectives varied from plans to toppling the regime to hiding Jews and members of other persecuted groups, sometimes both. This webinar will explain who these people were, their motivation, and most importantly, tries to find an answer as to why the German Resistance was to a vast degree, unsuccessful. Nevertheless, a relatively large number of brave people risked their lives to do the right thing and many of them were brutally murdered for it. This webinar also wants to make sure their names won't ever be forgotten.
Berlin’s stunning landscape can stupefy you. Home to over 200 parks, forests and green spaces, and over a hundred lakes - replete with beautiful lidos and sandy beaches - it’s one of the greenest cities in the world. Martin helps you discover all this, and more! Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, Martin lived abroad between 1994 and 2010 and experienced a potpourri of different cultures. At university, he explored German history and studied German-Jewish exile organizations that emerged as a result of the rise to power by the Nazis. Following his graduation, he was then offered to contribute to the exhibition “Eichmann on Trial”, organized by Berlin’s Topography of Terror. This led Martin back to Berlin, and he re-discovered the city he had left long ago. Fascinated by Berlin’s total make-over, he decided to turn his rekindled fascination with Berlin into his profession. Since then, his tours have been peppered with adventures and exciting stories, ranging from European cultures to celebrities like Marlene Dietrich. “I once gate-crashed the building where David Bowie used to live in Berlin with a customer who was a huge David Bowie fan and ‘bumped’ into a resident who promptly invited us to have coffee!” he says.

Despite the lack of visuals your voice was clear enough to deliver the perfect seminar yet again. We all enjoyed your five star talk. Thank you a million times.

World class webinar. Now I know German resistance was more than what’s in Tom cruise’s movie. Lots of screenshots of Martin’s slides to follow up. If you are a Berlin and WWII history fan, this webinar is a must.

The input itself was very well prepared and interesting, going into detail as well as giving an overview over the German Resistance in WW2. However, the camera was very shaky so I could only listen and not watch due to getting dizzy. A tripod or something might be useful to stabilize the phone and make it easier to watch. Otherwise a very informative and educational tour - thanks!

Excellent information, none of which I knew. Weird thing for a walking tour though. More of a lecture

Very informative and detailed insight into an era that is difficult but necessary to learn about. Thank you for such an in-depth portrayal of those who lived, and often lost, their lives, with courage and conviction.
