75 years ago, the Berlin Blockade and the resulting Berlin Airlift were the first climax of the Cold War. The building of the Berlin Wall and the Cuban Missile Crisis were just two of the many other events that took place until the Cold War finally ended around 30 years ago.


With the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, however, scenarios of nuclear escalation have become topical again and there is much talk of a "new Cold War". The debate about the interpretation of key events of the Cold War, such as the airlift, has also become more heated. Is the public presentation of history caught up in the current situation in Europe? Are we really experiencing a new Cold War that is now threatening to escalate into more extensive armed conflicts?

The "THFxLUFTBRÜCKE" event organized by the Military History Museum of the Bundeswehr Berlin-Gatow Air Base, the Berlin-Karlshorst Museum and the Allied Museum is part of the THFxGESCHICHTE series by Tempelhof Projekt GmbH.

Speakers
  • Jürgen Lillteicher (Allied Museum)
