Berlin - A Square, A Murder and A Famous Communist

The history of the Scheunenviertel

A square in the heart of Berlin, where gangsters, communists, Nazis, prostitutes and Jews once shared the same pavement. This place may appear unassuming – yet its streets have been walked by some of German history's most infamous characters and hold the secrets of the country's past.
