Until today, I didn’t know that Germany does not allow Google Street View

Today I finished book II of Victor Klemperer’s “I Will Bear Witness” and in it he mentions his and his wife’s stay at Unterbernbach, Germany as refugees. I wanted to take a look at a street view of this tiny German hamlet that hosted the Klemperer’s for several weeks following their flight from bombed-out Dresden. However, I found out that Germany does not allow Google Street View ostensibly for privacy issues. News to me. Apparently, it’s been a subject of discussion for years just under my radar.  I’m happy that V. Klemperer and his wife survived their Ulysses-like travails in Nazi Germany 1933-1945. I will miss them.
