More than just paper
Ernst Reuter’s legacy, which is held by Berlin’s Landesarchiv, contains more than just letters, manuscripts of speeches, and official documents. Alongside a variety of photos, captivating objects from Reuter’s everyday life can also be found, including suitcases, walking sticks, cigar boxes, and a selection of berets – one of the trademarks of the former Governing Mayor.
