Airlift Berlin; a report with pictures / Published in the name of the Magistrat of Greater Berlin

Berlin-Grunewald: Arani, c.1949.

This unique report written in English and published in Germany features statistics, charts, and illustrations on the work of the Berlin Airlift and its impact on Berlin’s population and Occupied Germany. The Berlin Airlift was a military operation undertaken by the United States and western European nations in the late 1940s that brought food and other needed goods into West Berlin by air after the government of East Germany cut off its supply routes. There are just under twenty copies of this report in U.S. and German libraries combined.
