Storyboard Text

  • After the WW2 ended, Germany was split into 4 sectors occupied by France, Britain, Russia, and the USA. Berlin was Germany's capital, which was also divided by the 4 countries.
  • In 1948, Joseph Stalin decided he wanted Berlin all to himself, so he blocked all railroads, canals, and highways from western occupied Germany into western occupied Berlin, also known as the Berlin Blockade.
  • After  becoming aware of Stalin's intentions, President Harry S. Truman and  Winston Churchill decided to take action.
  • We must help the people of Berlin. They do not deserve to suffer as a result of their leader's selfish rule. I will send immediate aid. 
  • The Berlin airlift then followed.  The US and its allies carried over  fuel and food supplies to supply the people from the western part of Berlin.
  • Help is coming!
  • The Berlin Airlift proved to be successful for many families were provided with enough supplies to survive. 
  • On May 12, 1949, Stalin had no choice but to  lift the blockade from West Berlin.  The Berlin Blockade served to show  competing ideologies and economic  forms.
