Що ви робитимете

Our virtual meetup in Berlin will bring us back in time, to the dramatic 1930s in Germany. I'll share my special, inspiring and quite unbelievable true story with you.

One of the best ways to learn about a period in history is through personal stories of people who witnessed that era. Our talk will give you this type of experience.

I'll tell you a story about a Jewish boy who once lived in the house where I live now in Berlin. He accidentally met Hitler, fled Nazi Germany, and was my pen-pal for a while before passing away. His life with its crazy coincidences could be a script for a movie, and I feel really blessed to be able to share his story with you.

I'll show you his letters to me, old photographs, his memoire, and tell you why a vintage typewriter traveled all the way from Berlin to New York, why is a tiny rose bush in my courtyard is so precious to me, and why it is so important to pay attention to little things around us.

In the first part of the session, I’ll tell you about the specifics of ''remembrance culture“ in Germany, and we'll have a discussion about it, recalling significant memorials, museums, history books/movies.

At the beginning, we’ll get to know each other a bit, and on the way, everybody is welcome to participate in discussions, sharing their thoughts and opinions on the subject. So, it‘s not just my storytelling, but also communication!

I am Maria, a passionate storyteller and a tour guide in Berlin. Throughout the years, I have been exploring the history and the unique spirit of this multifaceted, frenzied, and incredible city, I have discovered so many amazing stories, that at some point I realized I want to share them with people.

Working in PR and cultural journalism, I mastered the art of storytelling. Now, tour-guiding gives me a great opportunity to put these skills into practice.

Apart from showing visitors Berlin's hidden gems, I do translations, organize cultural events for kids and grownups, do yoga, and raise my two awesome sons.

Maria’s experience was marvelous. I learnt so many new things about the holocaust, and was able to discuss the cultural differences in remembrance between Europe and Asia. Maria’s penpal story was so touching that I was almost in tears at some points of time. Easily one of the very best experiences I’ve ever done!

This is most interesting and thought provoking session. It’s a fabulous personal story and well told by Maria. She’s very engaging and this works really well as an online experience. If you are hesitating booking, do just go ahead : it’s a fascinating two hours. You’ll learn lots. I lived in Berlin in the 80’s and visited many times since - but this experience makes me want to go again as soon as possible ! My husband and I really enjoyed the session: thx Maria ! Great job !

One of the best virtual experiences I've done! Maria's fantastic storytelling brought 1930s Berlin to life. She expertly facilitated engaging conversations and balanced historical context with fascinating stories. After this, I'm even more excited to return to Berlin as soon as possible. Thanks for a lovely afternoon, Maria!

Maria was awesome! She was very friendly, interactive, and her presentation was outstanding. She even offered to stay online after the class to answer questions or discuss her presentation further. I highly recommend this experience!

It was interesting experience with the personal story of Maria and her pen pal. She was knowledgeable, easy to understand and very friendly. There were moments when host should continue talking about the topic rather than having everyone sharing their travels and comments, but this is just a personal preference. I would recommend this experience for those who want to get a basic knowledge of WWII memorials in Berlin as well.
