This disaster: Storms and levee breaches that tide comes! A cry of alarm, the Hamburger, back Saxony and Schleswig-Holsteiner are still in the ear. During the floods of 1962, 315 people had lost their lives in Hamburg. As the hurricane, this time facing the North Sea front, dikes broke again. On both sides of the Elbe, the fertile marshland was undergone to the horrors of the storm surge 14 years ago.
The hurricane warning had reached too late most of the inhabitants. And when she arrived, too many on the protection of dikes reinforced with million effort is familiar. That they still comfortably survived the flood, they owe also the Bundeswehr. Before storm night were all soldiers stationed in Northern Germany in their barracks back commanded, in the morning, they practiced the disaster relief already in place. They helped save lives and were even then not be discouraged, if trapped people in spite of the rising water sure damning themselves and save themselves not to leave.
The balance sheet at noon after the storm night: conspicuous damage. In hundreds of homes, the water had reached the first floor. Hamburg is once again davongeko_men. The storm surge was little more than a spectacle for the most Hanseatic League. For a three-quarter billion mark had been the dikes in last decade increased and fixed. You stood up. Only in the port area, some deep, industrial and residential areas were inundated. The damages were limited.
The flood in the old March Dyke before Hamburg tore up to 80 meters wide gaps. Pioneers of the German armed forces filled the levee breaches with about one million Saudsäcken. Also this time only a few people lost their lives: here, the next storm surge could lead to a disaster. This policy: the first Chancellor Konrad Adenauer - would he become 100 years old these days. In the Federal Government and opposition remembered together the first Chancellor and main designer of the Federal Republic. Who was he, man and politician Adenauer?
Federal President Scheel: "he was a completely civilian man. Certainly, he had a pronounced sense of dignity and a high degree on self-confidence. But he was also met by a deep aversion to anything theatrical or against any kind of pathos. He was a citizen and a Democrat, and wanted to do nothing more than his duty.
Adenauer himself has said in view of the time after his death, he wished that later even if ignore the people of the mist and dust this time, said of him going, he did his duty. That handed him.'
German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher: "Konrad Adenauer's foreign policy was not only the German need for security, but also what our Western partners here. Its realization has influenced decisions in Europe. He has clearly seen what German foreign policy under all circumstances should pay attention, namely, within the Western community of States do not fall in an isolated position.'
The CDU has honored its founder and first Chairman in addition through a their own celebration. What does Konrad Adenauer of the present?
Prime Minister: Dr. Helmut Kohl: "the results of this his policy belong today a matter of political everyday life. Are common basis of for policy: - I hope, I may even say this: the politics of all democratic parties in Germany. Adenauer has step by step and in many cases they won against the bitter opposition of the then opposition. It would be gone at that time after the Social Democrats: we have the institutions and realities not, where also the leaders of today's Federal Government with very great naturalness move. "The Nazis have him very early as denouncing a prominent opponent, because he was always, what many Germans were only after the bitter experience of 1933-1945: a European, a German Patriot and Democrat, an opponent and Overcomer of nationalism."
Including aviation: 'it all started 50 years ago...'
Automate computer start and landing operations: flying - today so perfected, that hardly anyone wasted a thought on the machines and men of the first hour - on Albert Schäfer for example, the first Lufthansa air mileage millionaire.
Berlin Tempelhof 50 years ago. The men throw their rugged flying machines for the start to a new future. The technology to the air cost price, a high for many small airlines, the variety of aircraft the progress a breach hit. Concentration of force led to the creation of the Lufthansa on 6 January 1926. She are the long-awaited chance to conquer the sky for people in big way the pilots from first days of flight time. That distances will now shrink to a scarcely credible level opened for every age of new action and adventure dimensions.
The high-strung expectations of passengers to simulate the new Lufthansa. Just a few weeks after its creation it picks up its first scheduled flights, half a year later she opened a night route between Berlin and Königsberg. From now on will be the motto for decades: modernization of the aircraft fleet and the development of new flight routes. Catapult-launched on-board aircraft reduce the transport time of the post between Germany and America. The flying boat DG X, a jumbo, who was born as a dinosaur. Its maiden flight was to New York to be last.
The Junkers G 38 had more luck. Some of their passengers could enjoy the view undisturbed through Windows in the wings forward. With 34 passengers on board, the giant bird flew 3000 kilometers.
The flying boat Dornier provides whale from 1932 to pacemaker services establish a connection across the South Atlantic. Converted freighters use the nimble aircraft as floating airfields on their jumps across the Atlantic.
Before the launch of the South America service, Lufthansa had dared her first far East expedition. Explore two aircraft on a flight to Beijing the Siberia line Junkers G 24. Even the airships of count Zeppelin be secured in establishing a worldwide flight network. Star-shaped, swarming the planes of Lufthansa of Germany after all parts of the world, developed capital cities, countries, continents international air traffic.
New aircraft are designed and built, have proven themselves above Rio and the Himalayas, Lufthansa's reputation to be fast, punctual and above all reliable. Decade-perpetual prestige is attracting the JU 52. It was built about 5,000 times and survived all their successors as a sturdy, good-natured workhorse to the air.
In the 30s, the Lufthansa takes a rough recovery. Flying is 'in', to track performance claimed the aircraft already the status of Massenverkehrsmittels. For pilots and engineers, challenges remain: one of them is the Atlantic Ocean.
On August 10, 1938, also of the North Atlantic is defeated. A Fockewulf lands 200 'Condor' from Berlin after a non-stop flight in America. The crew takes a bath in the applause of the New Yorker. Late 1938 the Lufthansa is the second largest airline in Europe.
At the point of intersection of the technological progress: Blast from the past - which began 50 years ago.
