Heinz and Leanore Ickstadt
Living in Berlin: With and Without the Wall
Leanore and Heinz Ickstadt have lived in Berlin from the construction of the Wall in 1961 to its fall in 1989 and through its reincarnation as the capital of Germany. Heinz came from his home near Frankfurt as a student in 1957. Leanore, a New Yorker born in Staten Island, came on a Fulbright Fellowship in 1961 to study dance. They lived in the Island City Berlin for forty years; raising a family and pursuing their respective professional careers as scholar of American literature and dancer/choreographer (see leanore-ickstadt- dance.com for additional information).
The many changes in the city during that time, as well as its fascinating evolution since the fall of the Wall have made it a tourist magnet, a “hot city” – like New York, where the Ickstadts found a second home in 1993 here at the Masters.
