dzx2.net is my business address and journalistic blog. I am free lance journalist and radio producer
You will find here news about articles and productions, and more importantly often their background – “the story behind the story” – plus additional information and pictures. Furthermore there are usually English explanations, because in the last few years my work load in German has dramatically increased. I therefore always take the time for to at least write a small introductory paragraph in English about what I wrote in German. Most of the pieces concern political or social phenomena in the UK, so it is only polite also to those interviewed that there should be a little bit in the language they can understand.

Short points about me:
I trained in history, politics, sociology, sport and coaching and completed half a phD at UCL London on violence in 20th century movements, which he then discontinued. I combine the areas of humanities, science and vocational skills. I worked in German and English amongst others for the German Die Tageszeitung, die Jüdische Allgemeine (Germany’s Jewish weekly), Deutsche Welle and the BBC, and have worked as director, press officer and researcher (beside a side-occupation in Pilates that accompanied me throughout me career). See Services (eng) and CV for more details. I was born to a Jewish refugee family (one side Polish-Jewish, one side German-Jewish) in Munich, Germany, and also lived in Israel, and The Netherlands, before moving to Britain, where I call London my home for over 20 years.
