I met Nina Berman in New York City while staying their to do a Graphic Design project with David Carson. My first NYC breakfast I have on upper broadway west next-door to my hotel at morningside heights. Next to me was sitting Charles Berman, a german emigrated very nice older NYC citizen and we have a talk about these, in my eyes, shit german young nazis. Then a young sporty girl on a mountain bike appeared with the first copy of a freshly printed photo book, photographed by her. The title of the book is PURPLE HEARTS and I was very, very impressed and disturbed. Conclusion: I recommend this book to all german politicians who send our young people into the Afghanistan war or in other wars !!!
