A historical walk by the Förderverein zum Gedenken an Nazi-Verbrechen um und auf dem Tempelhofer Flugfeld e. V. - The Tempelhofer Feld not only tells of the "Airlift".

It has a National Socialist history: Columbiahaus concentration camp, aviation research, armaments industry and forced labor. Three million "Eastern workers" toiled in Berlin for the Luftwaffe. But the place also tells, if you look closely, of Leni Riefenstahl's film for the 1936 Olympics and Adolf Hitler's speech on May 1, 1933. The Nazis made the workers' movement's day of struggle a holiday. All hard to believe, but true.
