Potsdamer Platz is one of Berlin's two "big" squares (the other being Alexander platz) Today Potsdamer Platz is reminiscent of Times Square with tall high-rises, flashy advertising and upscale shopping and dinning.

But it has not always been this way. This square has been at the center of Berlin's history for over 100 years and thus has beard witness to this city's traumatic history. A bustling center of nightlife and cabaret in the 1920's, bombed flat in WWII, cut in half by the infmous wall and now re-united and re-developed to be a symbol of the new Berlin. Potsdamer Platz has come to define Berlin and a re-united Germany. In this CJ we will cover the development of Potsdamer Platz starting in 1920. I hope you enjoy!
