Around 1,000 people demonstrated in Berlin after Donald Trump won the U.S. election last November. Enough of a sign for American activist Kathleen Brown to form the “coalition” against Global Trumpism.

One month after the attack at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin that killed twelve people and left over fifty people injured, I meet with Berlin Victims Commissioner Roland Weber:

The Inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States is just around the corner. It’s no secret that a majority of Germans believe his presidency will worsen the transatlantic relationship, with me is Sudha David-Wilp, senior fellow with the German Marshall Fund in Berlin.

“It’s the first time in my life where I am witnessing how a country, a society, step by step drifts into a kind of absurd disaster," says Berlin-based writer Imran Ayata.

On the last day of 2016, I went to different places around Berlin to get a sense of the mood in the city and to see how people coped with the recent Christmas market attack. I meet American William Toll in front of the Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church at Breitscheidplatz, the site of the truck attack where twelve people were killed on December 19th.

"So you are no stranger to Berlin," I ask him.
