60 Jahre Panzerkonfrontation am Checkpoint Charlie (27.10.1961)

Nur zehn Wochen nach dem Mauerbau kommt es im geteilten Berlin erneut zu einer brisanten Situation: Am „Checkpoint Charlie“ stehen sich US-amerikanische und sowjetische Panzer gegenüber.

In den Tagen zuvor hatten DDR-Polizisten wiederholt zivil gekleidete US-Offiziere unbefugt zum Vorzeigen ihrer Papiere aufgefordert. Gemäß Viermächte-Status genießen Vertreter der Alliierten volle Bewegungsfreiheit in der ganzen Stadt, nur den Besatzungsmächten selbst ist die gegenseitige Kontrolle von Ausweisdokumenten gestattet.

Der nach dem Bau der Mauer von John F. Kennedy als Sonderbeauftragter nach Berlin entsandte General Lucius D. Clay nimmt die Vorfälle zum Anlass, ein Exempel zu statuieren. Am 25. Oktober lässt der „Vater der Luftbrücke“ am „Checkpoint Charlie“ erstmals Panzer auffahren, die nach Gesprächen zwischen dem US-amerikanischen Stadtkommandanten und seinem sowjetischen Kollegen zunächst wieder abgezogen werden. Zwei Tage später wiederholt er die Drohgebärde, diesmal zieht die Gegenseite allerdings nach. 16 Stunden lang halten am „Checkpoint Charlie“ US-amerikanische und sowjetische Panzer in nur wenigen hundert Metern Abstand ihre Kanonen aufeinander gerichtet. Krieg scheint in Sicht. Ein Telefonat zwischen den Regierungschefs entschärft schließlich die Situation. Während Kennedy durchblicken lässt, dass er Clays Konfrontationskurs nicht teile, versichert Chruschtschow, dass die DDR eigenmächtig gehandelt habe. Daraufhin werden die Panzer schrittweise zurückgezogen.

Ost-Berlin ist damit in seinen Befugnissen gegenüber den Besatzungsmächten klar in seine Schranken verwiesen, die Verantwortung der UdSSR für die DDR bekräftigt sowie die Präsenz der Westalliierten in Berlin außer Frage gestellt. Fortan müssen sich alliierte Beamte beim Grenzübertritt aber mit Identitätskarten ausweisen.
