  • Germany Divided
  • Bye Bye
  • Uniting the Western zones
  • It was agreed at Potsdam that Germany would be divided into four occupation zones: Soviet Union, USA, Britain and France. The Allied Control Commission was the central organization for the four zones.
  • Uniting the Western zones
  • There were disagreements between the occupying powers, as they had different ways of looking at Germany. Soviets wanted material to re-build Soviet Union, while Wester countries wanted to built it's economy. At the end, after talks between the foregein ministers broke down and the Soviets stormed out. 
  • Uniting the Western zones
  • Now that the Soviets were no longer co-operating, the remaining powers had to decide how to run their part of Germany. American and Britsin had already united into a Bizonia, and later France joined them forming a Trizonia. This resulted in Germany being splitted it two. 
  • The Berlin blockade
  • In June 1948, the three allies created a single currencie, the Deutshmark, giving Trizonia economic unity. This decition took place at the ACC meeting. Soviets were furious because this created a separate economic unit from the East and it acknowledged that there were now two Germanys. 
  • Stalin saw this as a threat to the Soviet Union. He saw Trizonia as a mean of developing three zones more effectively, and deliberately forcing Soviets into poverty. He now was more convinced to protect Soviet interests in Germany.
  • In 1948 Stalin decides to shut off routes across Soviet-controlled Germany into Berlin, which became known as the 'Berlin blockade'. His purpose was to shows that Trizonia would not work. Trizonia would not be able to communicate with Berlin, and so people would run out of food.
