Šta ćete raditi

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!
Other things to note
Feel free to request another time slot if you have a group of friends who are up to a private experience in English or in Russian, I‘ll do my best to make it work. But, pls, check the time difference to avoid confusion! I will really appreciate if you propose a time slot using BERLIN time! Thanks!

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.

This experience with Maria was so unique and refreshing! I did not not know where the time went since she kept us so engaged by sharing such powerful images and I loved the reference to German terms throughout the presentation! The story about her pen pal was unlike any real life account and it restored my faith in humanity to see such warmth between strangers who end up becoming such great friends. Totally recommend this experience!!

Maria is so engaging and knowledgeable on her subject. She also weaves her personal experience into the story including a very touching ending. I like how she integrates photos and anecdotes throughout to make the entire program so very rich. I can't say enough about how nice it was that she involved the participants. I strongly recommend this experience for everyone.

My friends and I really enjoyed Maria's fascinating WWII pen pal presentation. She is an engaging and deeply knowledgeable storyteller, skilfully blending the personal and the historical. I was glad to be able to travel to Berlin virtually, and I hope that one day I can get an in-person tour from Maria.

Maria is a very welcoming and knowledgeable host and a great storyteller. We enjoyed discussing remembrance culture in Germany and learning about the Kuttner family and Maria's pen pal experience with Paul Kuttner.
