Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin And Kreuzberg
As a little extra to the last post, please watch a documentary which explains the situation before, during and after the blockade of Berlin in 1948-1949 in nothing but excellent way.
The film was made as part of American “Big Picture” series and has been provided with the following additional information:
“Big Picture: The West Berlin Struggle – National Archives and Records Administration – ARC Identifier 2569836 / Local Identifier 111-TV-628 – DVD Copied by Thomas Gideon – Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 – 05/15/1984). In West Berlin, a new skyline has risen from the rubble of World War II. A dynamic, prosperous city, West Berlin lies one hundred miles into Soviet controlled East Germany–an outpost of freedom in a jungle of Communist slavery. In West Berlin’s struggle to remain free–indeed, the Free World’s struggle–lies this week’s dramatic story.”
“An outpost of freedom in a jungle of Communist slavery” – you have to admire the style:-)
