a. the freedom is stronger!
Germany 1945 the war was total. Total destruction. What was built over centuries, collapsed in seconds in dust and ashes. But the will to live was stronger than chaos and despair.
It walked slowly upward. A nation of shadow in a spooky country proceeded to create a new world.
And one day, almost overnight, this new world took shape. A new currency had performed the miracle. Debris disappeared, new homes grew out of the ground, life was livable again.
The West building, the East from, and in between was Berlin - destroyed, dismantled, divided in four sectors, but full of energies that couldn't wait and wanted to wait. The Berliners were looking not right and not left. They rolled up their sleeves, they cleared away even the stones, the war had left them and so they were finished with, which put them to the Russian occupation in the way.
The liberators from the East had freed from all the Berlin, what they once loved and possessed. And then the Russian bear with the Berlin bear wanted to keep wedding. Berlin was to be communist. It didn't. It was tested, namely hard tested.
Not by the pink red glasses of the theory, this city saw communism, but in the headlights of the practice. And therefore called the Berliner corruption not progress, terror not freedom and dictatorship not democracy.
The Berlin knew what they wanted. And above all, they knew what sic did not want. This was reflected in the first Municipal Council elections in 1946: only 19.8% voted for the Communist Party.
Bitter about this result the Communists operated now open, what they had done so far secretly. They sabotaged the democratic life of Berlin and paralyzed administrative and economic life of this city. But Berlin had powerful allies in his fight for Justice and freedom: the Western allies. It became increasingly obvious to the desire of the Soviets to prevent the unity and the reconstruction of Germany.
You left the four powers management and sowjetisierten their zone as if it were an annektiertes country. After the introduction of the Westmark, the Soviets led their most brutal blow. You blockaded Berlin. Overnight, the bridges over the river Elbe were rotten and Rails rusty. The big blockade began.
Berlin was a besieged city. In the book of the history of the blockade is identified at one time as one of the unrühmlichsten acts ever committed people. But the air-bridge, received 2.3 million Berlin against the Soviets in the life be hailed as one of the hugest, most adventurous achievements of modern technology.
The airlift defeated the blockade; the Communists, the cheap workers of Moscow, had to resort to new means and methods. Since they could not hit the heart of the city, they tried to paralyze the nerves. And so began the period of the small war: small block, always new chicanes at the zone boundary, demonstrations, bad character, threats, riots, unrest, violence.
The Russians had already sowjetisiert their zone in the freedom nothing and the disposition Lumperei everything is, as in West of Germany the Federal Republic was created with the support of the Western allies.
It was the establishment of the Eastern State, whose driving danced to the tune of Moscow.
The production style of public appearance was a fatal familiar.
The German Soviet State, called German Democratic Republic, presstHalbwüchsige to the so-called people's police, which is nothing more than a new SA, a Soviet army.
And repeatedly attacks, kidnapping, always new rumours, propaganda, war of nerves. Pressing Moscow on a button and a new roller always plays the old melody in Pankow. These days, it is the March of the FDJ, the hyped up youth on Berlin.
On May 1, the Berliner showed what they think.
They gave the East a reply, a reply in 600,000 of times copy.
What's else do this noticing, that here say the responsible representatives of the free West Berlin: Franz Neumann, SPD.
(Original sound: "for months To try, to create unrest by their propaganda for the Pentecostal movement in Berlin the Communists.) Achieved but they have the opposite.")
Dr. Walter Schreiber, CDU.
(Original sound: "it is the way of totalitarian systems, to soften up the people by pressure or threat, this despicable system is known, we Christian Democrats enough so that it can impress us No more.")
Ernst Scharmowski, for the UGO.
(Original sound: "our Pentecostal slogan is: friendly, alert but determined.")
Carl Hubert Schwennicke, FDP. (Original sound: "the purpose of this propaganda campaign is mainly to the Berlin population, to inhibit the economic revival and to disrupt trade relations between Berlin and the Western zones of Germany.) The mercenaries of Moscow have not so far achieved this goal and they will not reach it also.")
(Original sound: "the attempt of Communists and their client, the Soviet occupying forces, to intimidate dieBerliner population by its announcement of the Pentecostal March, is from the outset to fail.) convicted. No one can conquer this city, nobody will conquer this city. Berlin will remain always in his hand of free, upright, German men.")
05. Tragic News:
The Soviet News Agency TASS declares:
"The release of German prisoners of war from the Soviet Union is finished. This news has caused great horror and disgust all over Germany and abroad. Numerous families still wait for the return of their relatives. And now this message! People of all classes met in the Bundesdistrict for protest demonstrations. The Western German Bundes government appealed to the whole world and to the Soviet government in order to elevate the faith of one and a half millions of Germans who are still in the Soviet Union according to the statistics. A common protest of the American and British government is in preparation. This note will prove the inaccurary of the Moscow declaration. Bundes Chancellor Dr. Adenauer said: "This is an appeal to humanity which concerns all nations. This matter must be cleared."
06. Berlin Visit of Averell Harriman:
ERP Money builds up Industry
Averell Harriman, the American Ambassador for the European Marshall Plan, arrived for an official visit in Berlin. He said in a press conference that he admires the Berliners fight for reconstruction of their existence and how they resist the pressure from the East: "We will help the Berliners as much as we can and webelieve in them and in their final victory." Afterwards Mr. Harriman viewed several industrial works and the electric Power Station West which has been rebuilt with ERP-money. Allover Berlin and Western Germany good account was given of the work accomplished with ERP money. The increase of electric power in Southern Germany by the building of new power stations is one of the greatest projects. This is the steam power station in Schwandorf. And this is another project in Niedereichbach. The power station in Aschaffenburg is to spread out the current exchange between Bavaria and Western Germany. ERP helps also outside of Germany. This here shows how a huge dam is being built in an African colony of France.

A collection will be started on May, 14th for the German Mother's Program. Frau Heuss, wife of the German Bundes President, presents her husband with the first flower. Then she appeals to the public:
(Original Sound: "Ladies and Gentlemen! If somebody will stop you on the street today to sell you those little roses - please be cheerful and not in a bad mood. I know that some people do not like it at all, but you must not forget that this collection is quite voluntary and that it serves a good purpose. We want to help all mothers who need help.

03. Til Eulenspiegel is up again
Til Eulenspiegel died in this little town of Mölln, Lauenburg in Schleswig-Holstein in the year 1350. This is his gravestone. But in reality the wise rascal is not dead and this is how his 600th death anniversary is celebrated. He cracks his jokes and opens the Eulenspiegel-year with the words: "Fight Lack of Humour!" Eulenspiegel also wanted to better the world, but he wanted to do it with a smile, while he held the mirror of truth in front of it. "Be gay and peaceful!" - says the Eulenspiegel of 1950. And he said he would dance on the rope to show his gratefulness. The people believed him - and were fooled. Because Eulenspiegel has more urgent duties - the most cheerful citizen of Mölln will be honoured with the diploma of "Humoris Causa". Eulenspiegel-jokes with a deep meaning ...
