It is the vast and all the countless minor man-made environmental catastrophes, it is the countries far away and it is again and again the pristine beauty of a small, almost forgotten stretch on Germany‘s map called „Wendland“ that runs like a golden thread through all my stories.
A permanent and delicate balancing act.
Just like life.
► How did the nuclear catastrophe of Fukushima impact
every day life in Japan?
► How is life today in the deserted evacuation zone around the
exploded nuclear power plant of Chernobyl?
► How does it feel 750 metres below ground in the close
to collapse nuclear waste dump Asse?
► What remains of the first German
nuclear reactor of 1942
still exist today?
► How does a transport of nuclear waste unhinge everyday life in an entire district?
► How eco-friendly is the so-called clean gas gathering including fracking in reality?
► How does it feel, if your century-old village is supposed to vanish for an open pit coal-mining?
► What kind of toxic legacy slumbers in an abandonded chemical plan in Eastern Germany?
► How was life in an interrogation jail of the former Eastern German intelligence apparatus?
► And what surprising moments can you observe at the brink of recent politics?
You are invited to find out!
But there are stories about the almost invisible, pleasant moments in life as well:
► Discover the enchanting faces of Java and Bali.
► Follow me on a side trip into the art of French cuisine.
► Feel the vibrant fascination of a sunrise in May.
► Admire the majestic mood and glowing blue of the twilight hour.
► And again and again, enjoy the impressions from a charming area called Wendland (located between Hamburg and Berlin in Germany).
