Post-War Berlin Variety Show

Friedrichstadt Palast Weltstadtvariete

Showing almost a decade of theater and other performances, these scrapbooks were gifts to employees and show a precise history of the Friedrichstadt Palast, a theater in Berlin, after emerging from the shadows of World War II. The building itself was heavily bombed during the war and the photographs in these scrapbooks show the rebuilt interior.
