Night Flight To Berlin was exhibited at the Pankow Museum from November 2013 to April 2014. It is a history of the families Less and van der Zyl covering their lives in pre-War Germany, the misfortunes they endured under the Nazi regime and the escape by Rabbi Werner van der Zyl and his wife and daughter to England in 1939.

It is brought up to date with displays relating to Nikki's multiple careers including her major contributions to the Bond films, and her marriage to George Rooker.
