Interview with Manoj Punjabi Producer

We have had the pleasure to spend some time behind the scenes of the prequel to Habibie and Ainun and interview the producer Manoj Punjabi.
Rudi Habibie, the first President of Indonesia after dictator Suharto, studied in Aachen, Germany and Görlitz was chosen to best resemble the way that Aachen looked in the 1950s when Habibie studied there.


What was the World War II damage in Görlitz?

One thing making Görlitz very unique is the fact that the damage from the many wars taking place in the region was minimal. That is why to this day you can walk the streets and few monuments from the past 10 centuries.
When looking at WWII, a relatively tiny toll was taken. Here are a few examples:





Do you recognize these places?

Görlitz Redesigns by bringing back the Past

Back in 1908, the Dr.-Kahlbaum-Allee was known as the promenade of trees where pedestrians could walk in the shade during the hot summer months.
As the technological revolution proceded, automobiles replaced the strolling citizens and the face of Görlitz was changed.
Now, the Stadtverwaltung is planning to bring back the old way and plant the trees where the old ones once were.
