Sunday with Zille – Sonntag mit Zille

What would be Berlin without Heinrich Zille? Or Zille without Berlin? Heinrich Zille was a German illustrator and photographer, who lived from 1858 to 1929. He is known for drawing his “milljöh” (Milieu), common people and the proletariat. Today we went to see at the Komödie am Kurfürstendamm Theater the theater piece Zille. It was funny, critical and heartwarming. I really enjoyed it. Now I have to research a bit more about Zille and “sein milljöh”.

Was wäre Berlin ohne Heinrich Zille? Oder der Pinselheinrich ohne Berlin? Zille war ein deutscher  Grafiker, Maler und Fotograf, der das Berliner Volksleben sozialkritisch und patriotisch darstellte. Er lebte von 1858 bis 1929 und während 1880 und 1882 absolvierte er einen Teil seiner Militärdienstzeit als Wachsoldat im Zuchthaus von Sonnenburg heute Slonsk, wo ich letztes Wochenende war. Heute haben wir Zille und sein Milljöh in der Komödie am Kurfürstendamm Theater gesehen, ein wunderbar lustiges, nachdenkliches und kritisches Stück, was wir alle sehr genossen haben. Nun muss ich etwas Recherche betreiben. Wo steht denn das Denkmal von ihm?  photo 1(11)
