A Cold War baby courtesy of a US “Ami”- American Soldier stationed in Germany in the 1980’s and a Bavarian-German mom. Elizabeth moved to Germany because that is what young, poor Germans in their early 20’s do. Sadly now having left that golden age of her youth behind, in her academic career (BA: St. Lawrence University, New York, MA: Freie Universität, Berlin) she specializes in the history of genocide as a global process with a particular interest in the psychological precursors and effects in relation to those who are involved in these events. She takes immense pride in being able to bring greater awareness and understanding in how Germany allowed itself to descend into a nation that became silent bystanders and of course in some cases, participants in the atrocities of the Holocaust; a phenomenon that resonates with millions of people across generations and across boarders to today. In Berlin, she specializes in tours of Sachsenhausen (having had the privilege of completing an internship in the archive department as part of her training) and the Third Reich Berlin with special attention to the persecution of Jewish victims in Berlin.
She also offers general history tours of Berlin, Berlin Wall tours, German food and beer experiences and Potsdam city tours. Please contact me as well to build a tour that caters to what you personally would like to see, eat and experience while you are with us in Berlin!
