The open-air exhibition "Blocked Victors - Divided Berlin. 75 Years of the Airlift" at Tempelhof Airport will be accompanied by an exciting program: at THFxLUFTBRÜCKE, historians, contemporary witnesses and publicists will show what role the Airlift plays in Berlin's culture of remembrance and literature and take a look at the conditions at the time.
The blockade and airlift are German "places of remembrance" from the beginning of the Cold War, whose perception and significance have changed over time. The Airlift commemoration found an early manifest form in the memorial here opposite Tempelhof Airport. Historian Axel Drieschner takes a look at the controversial history of the creation of the "Hunger Rake", while historian Ulrich Pfeil traces the narrative of freedom and reconciliation closely associated with the airlift.
The THFxLUFTBRÜCKE series of events organized by the Military History Museum of the Bundeswehr Berlin-Gatow Airfield, the Berlin-Karlshorst Museum and the Allied Museum is part of the THFxGESCHICHTE series by Tempelhof Projekt GmbH.
All events take place free of charge in the CHECK-IN visitor center of the airport building.
