Berlin unter den Alliierten, 1945-1949: Hoffnungen und Entauschungen

Produced by German filmmakers and presented from a German point of view, this documentary uses archival films to illustrate the history of Berlin from the end of World War II through the division of Germany into East and West in 1949. During reconstruction the city is divided into four sectors, administered respectively by the four victorious Allies. In 1948, Berlin is split by the rivalry between the Western Allies and the Soviet Union who impose a blockade on the three Western sectors. The Western Allies counter by supplying the city by air-- The Berlin Airlift. In English and German with English subtitles. Originally produced in 1990. 90 min.
