Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo - Christiane F.

This photo was taken in Amsterdam, 2009.

We Children from the ZOO Station (English translation) is an autobiographical book based upon interviews with the German-born and teen drug addict Christiane F. The narrative of the book is in the first person, but was written by two German journalists (Kai Herrmann and Horst Rieck) functioning as ghostwriters.

The book was first published in Germany, in 1979.

In 1981, the story was made into a film directed by Uli Edel, in which Christiane worked as an advisor. David Bowie appears as himself in a concert, and also provided the music in the movie, released on the 1981 soundtrack album Christiane F..
