The Berlin Chronicle Notices - Walter Benjamin
Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) began to ruminate on his Berlin childhood not long before he fled Germany for good, in 1933. The resulting 'Berlin Chronicle' notices - forty in all - explore the ways of memory in relation to place - in light of Benjamin's own memories and in relation to his native place. Rich in themselves, these 'Chronicle' notices provide a unique key to the esoteric texts Benjamin would produce for his much-loved Berlin Childhood circa 1900.
