Ingrid Brekke

Journalist, Norway


I work in the foreign news department of Aftenposten, Norway. I mainly cover Germany and Eastern Europe, and from 2010-12 I was correspondent, based in Berlin.
I have written two books: One is called "Da øst ble vest", "When east became west". The main content is from my travels in Hungary, Poland and Germany, about the dramatic year of 1989 and how the countries changed in different ways afterwards.
The second book is a biography of Angela Merkel. It will be published in august 2016.
