I gained access to Die Dame today! After a bit of discussion with several employees of the Humboldt Uni Bibliothek, I attained a visitor card and entry into the Forschungslesesaal. Success. There were all the issues of Die Dame I could ever ask for. Hopefully they prove as useful and interesting as I imagined.
I also met up with good old Dave Oxnard today and acquired a Handy, which is good. A picture for Herr Dr. Shahan is mandatory at this point:
Needless to say, I will be paying a visit very soon. Another discovery: Buchstabenmuseum!!!! Stay tuned for a detailed description of that as well as the Käthe Kollwitz museum, which I am looking forward to greatly. Until then, on to the HU Bibliothek!
