The Detroit Berlin Connection

Schöneweide

Schöneweide is a struggling neighborhood in Berlin that lost more than 20 thousand industrial jobs once East and West Germany reunified in 1989. Though only several hundred jobs remain today, residents interviewed in this video call Schöneweide home and refuse to abandon it despite the challenges of living there.

This video is part of the WDET series, The Detroit - Berlin Connection.
