Yes, the road.

The field-grey Volkswagen, and "Memories of a Nation"


Erinnerungen einer Nation' (The British View: German - Memories of a Nation) exhibition at the Martin Gropius Bau museum in Berlin on October 7, 2016. The exhibition running from October 8, 2016 to January 9, 2017presents approximately 200 objects that originated during the last 600 years in Germany, and which are formative for culture, business and politics -- past and present. The show traces German identity from a British perspective. Adam BERRY / AFP
"Germany: Memories of a Nation" was originally a BBC broadcast, and is also a book by the director of the British Museum, Neil MacGregor.
