During the time of the Nazi regime, Berke mainly creates illustrations and harmless works. Still, these realistic drawings and sketches show his immense technical painting skills. With just a few lines he creates people and environments. After the war, he continues creating book illustrations, contract works (i.e. for the city of Cologne), graphic designs for advertisement and, above all, portraits.
