Dear Readers,

Compelling topics are up for discussion this week in Berlin, from the global perspective on Belgrade, Serbia, to the story of Soviet collaborators during WWII. An interview with Cesare Alemanni, a talk by Sylvia Nasar, and English Theatre Berlin's first event of 2014 all point to the literary/historical conversations unfolding throughout the city.

While I hope my newsletter helps you find these conversations, I also realize the best way to check is to ask you directly. I've put together a
2-minute reader survey to see how you like the newsletter so far, and what you think can be improved.

If you have a content tip, event, or partnership idea, you can email me at Otherwise, please keep sharing and @berlinreads with your friends. As always, the more the merrier.

Cheers & Prost,
