“Young people today have access to information and opportunities that would be unimaginable when I was born or Angela was born and if we can sustain that progress, then I feel very optimistic about our futures. But it’s ultimately going to depend on the young people here today.” —@BarackObama with @Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel in Berlin today.
Happy Birthday, Adolf. Love, Stalin. Artillery from the Soviets begins to fall on Berlin today in WW2 history, 4/20/45. Hitler had a brief 56th birthday celebration and was then urged by his generals to head south. Refusing, he instead set up a northern command under Dönitz and a southern command under Kesselring. Hitler would be dead in 10 days.
Bustling: The Berlin Wall was built by East Germany in 1961, and the top image shows the wall around the Brandenburg Gate on Nov 19, 1961. Today the same area is filled with cars, buses and people moving freely around the German capital.
