Karl M. von der Heyden – from Berlin to New York
Book Presentation (with Video Recording; in German)
In From Berlin to New York, von der Heyden describes his experiences as a child and youth in war-torn Germany and his journey to the USA, where he began studying at Duke University in 1957 and rose to the boardrooms of Pepsi and Dreamworks. It is the moving story of a man who is only able to consider the entanglements of his own family with Nazism from a distance and who, at the same time, embraces life in a new world full of courage and excitement at all the discoveries to be made.
“Karl von der Heyden has packed two captivating biographies into one. ... A book you can’t put down.” - W. Michael Blumenthal
The author presents his book in an interview with radio presenter Knut Elstermann.
In cooperation with be.bra publishers, the American Academy in Berlin and Bard College Berlin
