05 Sinclair McKay – Berlin – 3.30-4.30pm, Friday 24 June, The Vinson


To truly understand the 20th century, you need to understand Berlin – the city where opposing ideologies flowered, with their repurcussions leading right up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Join bestselling historian Sinclair McKay to discover the city’s story through the eyes not of its rulers, but of those who walked its streets. Shedding new light on well-known characters – from idealistic scientist Albert Einstein to Nazi architect Albert Speer – he draws on never-before-seen first-person accounts to introduce us to people of all walks of Berlin life.

Sinclair’s previous bestsellers range from The Secret Life of Bletchley Park to the political manoeuvres behind the Battle of Britain in Dresden.
