Storyboard Text

  • The four leaders meet at Potsdam and Yalta to decide many important postwar decisions. These included splitting Germany into 4 sections.
  • I want a part of Berlin!
  • My money is so worthless, I can't pay for anything with it.
  • Same here! I've been using cigarettes to barter with store owners.
  • Hey! Check out this new currency: the Deutsche Mark.
  • Our shops and society can actually function again. This definitely makes West Berlin better than East.
  • This new Deutsche Mark is so much better than trading with cigarettes!
  • Our Ostmark is just as good as the Deutsche Mark. Try it out!
  • This new currency is so good, I can buy my cigarettes for 1 Deutsche Mark again.
  • The success of the Deutsche Mark over the Ostmark outraged Stalin and the soviets. What came next were dire consequences.
  • What!? They're charging me 7 Ostmarks for mine. The Deutsche Mark is so much better!
  • Due to technical difficulties, all roads entering West Berlin will be closed off.
  • Schade! How am I going to run my business?
  • Furthermore, due to a shortage of coal, there will not be a sufficient amount of energy produced to give any to West Berlin.
  • We could go to war
  • What if we used a loophole in our flight agreement to ship supplies into West Berlin. 
  • That could end poorly for both sides
