Christiane F. Interview

My parents had one true passion: reading. I remember being a child, scouring through their hughe bookshelves and secretly taking books back to my room. One of them was "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo", the story of Christiane F., who became addicted to heroin as a teenager. The book was illustrated with authentic photos and even though I didn't know what "taking drugs" really meant or what Berlin looked liked, I was fascinated by the story and binge-read the book several times.
