Walking through Berlin is walking on historical ground. Few places in the world have as many historical layers hidden beneath the surface as the German capital. Unfortunately, a lot of these traces have faded over time, and even people interested in history cannot always detect them at first glance.
That’s why the berlinHistory e.V. association has set to make such historical traces visible and perceptible, and at the same time, preserve them for the future. For this purpose, we have created the berlinHistory app, which serves as an open digital platform for cultural institutions, museums and archives as well as for private initiatives, local researchers and individuals. After being reviewed by the editorial department, all kinds of historical documents - texts, photographs, audio files, videos and historical maps - can be published on the app. To facilitate this process, our team is constantly developing new digital tools and guarantees the permanent availability of our ever-expanding platform. And since all content is streamed, the berlinHistory app takes up very little space with only 40MB!
Interactive before-and-after pictures are a powerful tool for making layers of history visible and palpable.
The berlinHistory app contains a camera module that enables everyone to find the exact location of historical recordings and to create precisely fitting before and after pictures and upload them directly to the berlinHistory platform.
