From 2004 to 2018 I was project manager of Nowadays I am editor in chief of the domain Articles on TracesOfWar. For this website I also write articles and reviews. My attention is mainly focused on the history of the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. Personal stories about the war also have my interest. Except for TracesOfWar I write for I've also published two books in English. 'War Zone Zoo' is about the Berlin Zoo and the Second World War. 'Christmas under fire, 1944' tells about Christmas during 1944, at the front, at home and in the camps. More information at:
