Happy birthday to the inventor of the much-loved Currywurst!

🇩🇪🌭🍅 #Onthisday Herta Heuwer was born. The name might not be internationally famous, but she’s a legend in her hometown, as the creator of Berlin’s signature street food snack – the currywurst! On a rainy day in September 1949, she was feeling bored in her snack bar in Charlottenburg, West Berlin. She started experimenting with some curry powder she had acquired from British soldiers – mixing it with tomato paste, a couple of drops of Worcestershire sauce, a little salt, and sugar – and served the sauce up with a bratwurst. Customers were thrilled with the new dish – and the currywurst was born. Today, the currywurst figures amongst Germany’s most popular street foods. In Berlin alone, around 70 million of them are eaten every year. Have you ever tried currywurst?


Good luck during finals week!

This one’s for all the bookworms! What are you reading at the moment?

April 23 is #WorldBookDay! This man is the literal picture of a book lover. He’s picked up four books at once, opened two of them, and is gripping two more with his body. "The Bookworm", by Munich artist Carl Spitzweg, is one of his most well-known painting and depicts an unknown library which has been decorated in the Rococo style of the second half of the 18th century. Did you see how close the librarian is holding the book to his face? It seems his eyesight is not what it once was – or perhaps he can’t understand the content of the book?

Fun Fact: Carl Spitzweg painted three versions of this image, this one hangs today in a museum in Milwaukee, USA.

Guten Tag, Herr Gutenberg!

📖 On Wednesday, April 14th, 2021, anyone using Google’s homepage will be surprised by the portrait of this German inventor. The search engine is honoring Johannes Gutenberg, the creator of the modern printing press. His printing press is also depicted in the original Google doodle. Google is spelt backwards in the doodle, since that was the way the letters were set for printing. After printing, everything is the right way round again.
