What an utterly fascinating view of an insane slice of human history, told through the lens of the US ambassador's family in Berlin.

And of course I would be remiss to draw parallels with current events in the US, such as appeals to nationalism, rising paranoia about a minority group, world power positioning, borders, etc.
