The History of an Iconic Bar
The illustrated volume "100 Jahre Henne" [100 Years of Henne] by Klaus Sommerfeld and Wolfgang Chodan was published on the occasion of the bar's 100th year. A large number of (in some cases historic) photographs and sweeping text tell the exciting story of this traditional "old-style Berlin tavern." The lists of people who came to the tavern over the years for food and fun include Hans Albers and Harald Juhnke. A treasure trove of illustrations to keep or to use as a gift.
