#todayinhistory on June 24, 1948, One of the most dramatic standoffs in the history of the Cold War begins as the Soviet Union blocks all road and rail traffic to and from West Berlin. The blockade turned out to be a terrible diplomatic move by the Soviets, while the United States emerged from the confrontation with renewed purpose and confidence. 📰 Interesting fact: American officials were furious, and some in the administration of President Harry S. Truman argued that the time for diplomacy with the Soviets was over. For a few tense days, the world waited to see whether the United States and Soviet Union would come to blows. In West Berlin, panic began to set in as its population worried about shortages of food, water, and medical aid. The United States response came just two days after the Soviets began their blockade. A massive airlift of supplies into West Berlin was undertaken in what was to become one of the greatest logistical efforts in history. For the Soviets, the escapade quickly became a diplomatic embarrassment. Russia looked like an international bully that was trying to starve men, women, and children into submission. And the successful American airlift merely served to accentuate the technological superiority of the United States over the Soviet Union. On May 12, 1949, the Soviets officially ended the blockade. #germanhistory #coldwar #berlinblockade #berlin

D-Day Teil 2
⚠️Text is in German and English⚠️
Doch für die Zivilbevölkerung war die Befreiung kein reines Glück. Ganze Städte wurden dem Erdboden gleich gemacht, um den Deutschen alle Versorgungs- und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten zu nehmen. Dabei kamen auch viele französische Zivilisten ums Leben. Man schätzt, dass bis zum August 1944 etwa 14.000 Menschen durch die Luftangriffe in der Normandie starben und 200.000 Häuser zerstört wurden. Erstaunlich war, dass die Deutschen auf die Landung der Alliierten in der Normandie überhaupt nicht vorbereitet waren. Es befanden sich nur wenige Truppen an der Küste, die Befehlshaber waren nicht vor Ort. Noch mehrere Tage nach dem 6. Juni glaubte Hitler, die ganze Aktion sei nur ein Scheinmanöver der Gegner. Er war überzeugt davon, dass ein solcher Angriff zwar kommen würde, aber an einer anderen Stelle: nämlich bei Calais, wo die Strecke über den Kanal am kürzesten ist. Calais befindet sich etwa 300 Kilometer nordöstlich des Abschnittes, wo die Alliierten tatsächlich landeten. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
D-Day Part 2
But for the civilian population, the liberation was not pure luck. Whole cities were razed to the ground to take all supply and retreat opportunities for the Germans. It also killed many French civilians. It is estimated that by August 1944, about 14,000 people had died from air raids in Normandy and 200,000 houses had been destroyed.
It was amazing that the Germans were not prepared for the landing of the Allies in Normandy at all. There were only a few troops on the coast, the commanders were not on site. Several days after June 6, Hitler believed that the whole action was just a fake maneuver.
He was convinced that such an attack would come, but in another place: namely Calais, where the distance across the channel is the shortest. Calais is located about 300 kilometers northeast of the section where the Allies actually landed.

The Berlin Airlift – 70 years ago on June the 24th 1948 the Sowjets cutted the landlines between West-Berlin and West Germnay. The Western Allies decided to take action and started the largest humanitarian operation in history. For 322 days they successfully provided the West-Berlin-Section with beverages. Pan Am took responsibility for the american part and flew several flights to and from Berlin. It took 11 month till the Sowjets gave in and ended the blockade of West-Berlin.

Takeover Tag 4. Hier schreibt Autor Frank Goldammer. Ein paar Macken braucht der Mensch, oder? Ich kann an fast keinem T-Shirt einer bestimmten Marke vorbei (einige besitze ich seit Monaten und habe sie noch nicht getragen, weil sie mir zu schade dafür sind) UND seit ich vor drei Jahren zu dtv kam, habe ich keinen einzigen Umschlag oder Karton vom Verlag weggeworfen. (die ganz großen Kartons sind gar nicht mit auf dem Bild😀)
Und eure Macken so? Besucht mich auch auf meinem Kanal! #maxheller #writerslife #schreibenistmeinleben #dresden #dtvverlag #derangstmann #theairraidkiller #tattoo #buchmesse #tausendteufel #vergesseneseelen #krimi #book #bücher #crimestory #crimewriter #bookstagram #booksofinstsgram #bookworm #booknerd #germanhistory #welovereading #airraidkiller #athousanddevils #welovebooks #reading #lesen #frankgoldammer

I swear if this happened in America I guarantee you that the Conservative Republicans will be like “dOn’T dEStRoy iT It’S PaRt Of oUr hIStoRY.” Even Germany, the nation where the Nazi Party was founded, have left their Nazi identification in the past forever and are willing to destroy (but not forget) anything related to the Nazis right there and now. Why? Because they know that Nazis are not part of their modern identity. It’s a part of their history, but it doesn’t represent the nation they are today. But American CRs have been so brainwashed to think that Confederates, white supremacist, and Nazis are “American Patriots”. Hell, during and after WW2, the United States refused to take thousands of European Jewish people as refugees to escape The Holocaust BUT they let Nazi officers and doctors/scientists (Operation Paperclip) into the country AND granted them citizenship. Just shows you how Germany won’t support Nazis (something that’s part of their history) but yet America, known as the “Land of The Free” has always supported the oppressor and condemned the victims, even to this day.....
