If you live in Berlin or have visited sometime in the last 12 years, it’s likely you have seen him — he’s the man who rides a heavily adorned bicycle across the city every day, blowing on a whistle, pumping his arms and blasting the football chant OléOlé, Olé.

When young newcomers arrive in Berlin today, high on the city’s hopeful energy, it’s never long before somebody one-ups them with the classic line: “Berlin was so much better five years ago.”

AYDIN has been here for nearly half a century now. But he reckons that for Berlin’s newcomers, the best is yet to come. And he’s fighting every day to try to get us there.

In this issue:
A history of Turks in Germany
The reverse migration of German vocabulary
Activists, volunteers and do-gooders
Intergenerational migrant friendship
The Aydin Akin Starter Pack
