Congratulations to Daniel Hope, 44, who has received the Bundesverdienstkreuz from Berlin’s cultural senator, Klaus Lederer.

A protege of Yehudi Menuhin, Hope, who has made his home in Berlin, was decorated for his efforts in ‘breaking down barriers and connecting communities’.

      Knight’s Cross with Crossed Sword and diamond cluster, marvellous. My granddad got one by accident as a POW, a hilarious story rather like in the film the Password is Courage.
