What significance did the arrival of coal have for blockaded West Berlin, also with regard to the city's industry? And how was this important energy source transported by air?
Paul Hicks (former chairman of the Association for the Remembrance of the Air Bridge Berlin e. V. in Faßberg) and Timothy Moss (Humboldt University Berlin) will address these questions in their joint lecture.
The historian Timothy Moss has studied Berlin's infrastructure history intensively. Paul Hicks was chairman of the support association for the Airlift Memorial in Faßberg for many years.
The event marks the start of the “THFxLUFTBRÜCKE” program of the Bundeswehr Military History Museum at Berlin-Gatow Airfield, the Berlin-Karlshorst Museum and the Allied Museum – on the occasion of the open-air exhibition “Blocked Winners – Divided Berlin. 75 Years of the Airlift” as part of the “THFxHISTORY” series by Tempelhof Projekt GmbH.
All events take place free of charge in the CHECK-IN visitor center in the former airport building.
