My Journey into the past - Berlin
With the filming in Berlin for the ARD documentation the journey in my athletic past came to an end. I used to live in Berlin when the Wall fell in 1989 and Germany was reunited one year later. And today I live here again and enjoy when friends come to visit and admire my cool home town :-)
For the documentary I visit the Brandenburg Gate, the Tiergarten at Potsdamer Platz - the place where I used to live for many years - and the Berlin Cathedral. I meet my team of advisors, "old" acquaintances and am very proud that I was able to persuade my parents to interview them just for once in front of a camera.
I hope that my fans will enjoy the documentary "Katarina Witt - a journey to myself", which will be aired on Good Friday, March 25th 2016, at 19.00 on ARD, and say goodbye for now returning back to the present :-)
