Hub of Nobel Laureates is the title of a book by Susanne Kiewitz which describes the history of the Harnack House in Berlin. The book charts the changes that have taken place in what is now the conference center of the Max Planck Society and includes biographical sketches that bring these vividly to life. The result is a successful combination of institutional and contemporary history as well as proof of the fertile effects of international interchange and cooperation. It was an intellectual pleasure for us to have the opportunity to translate this publication – and in so doing make our own small contribution to the German-English linguistic exchange. The book was published in November 2016 by Jaron Verlag Berlin.
