Semester in Berlin

I am applying for a three month scholarship to further my work on the Holocaust in Berlin.The competition is ferocious and there will be over ten thousand applicants for the twenty slots. The Center is housed ironically on Lke Wansee the place where the Nazis formalized the”Final Solution.”I am entering this with my eyes open and will give the proposal my best shot. The center was originally owned by a Jewish banker who was forced to sell it to the Nazis.He went to the United States became wealthy again and the villa was returned to him after the war. In the 1990s the American Ambassador convinced the family to turn it into an American center for scholars.My belief is nothing ventured,nothing gained.
