What involved the use of airlplanes to bring food and supplies to the people of west Berlin?
The Berlin Airlift was the event you're asking about. Crate loads of food and supplies were shipped and dropped to West Berlin so that the people would not die of (literal) separation from East Berlin.
The Berlin Airlift was the US program to remain influential in West Berlin, Germany in response to the Soviet embargo - blocking incoming goods from West Germany to West Berlin. The airlift provided necessary goods and supplies to the residents of the city for two years, until the Soviets rescinded the trade barrier. People involved could be directly the Germans of West Berlin, the Soviets, and the Americans (specifically Harry Truman, the President at the… Read More
Because Russia had taken over East Berlin, the supplies coming from West Berlin to East Berlin had been cut off, leaving the people in East Berlin with virtually no supplies. The Berlin Airlift was then enacted as a sort of brinkmanship as well as to give East Berliners their items.
American, French and British people airlifted food and supplies to the people of West Berlin whom faced starvation after Stalin cut it off.
Right near the end of the war with Germany, the Russian army slipped into part of Berlin, thinking that this would be a real prize for them. They were thwarted by the Allies, so they simply surrounded Berlin to prevent food and supplies from getting to its people. So the Allies, largely the US, started the Berlin airlift to fly food and supplies in to Berlin's people.
The Berlin Airlift was a factor, supplies were flown in during Stalin's blockade.
We gave food and supplies to West (west, or east, i think its west) Berlin. Since Germany banned us from going in and driving supplies to them, we decided to get creative and start airlifting the supplies to them. This was of course, to keep W. Berlin from falling to Communism, which the other half of Germany was. Oh yeah, and the Berlin wall was put up, so people could not go to the W… Read More

It's when people use airplanes to carry people or supplies somewhere. In the context of Germany and the Cold War, it was when, in 1948-1949, the Soviets blockaded West Berlin in an attempt to starve the people into surrendering and joining them. The USA, UK and some Commonwealth countries conducted the "Berlin Airlift", where they used airplanes to bring supplies to West Berlin- thereby thwarting the Soviet effort.
The Berlin Airlift took place all over Europe, where allied planes flew supplies over Soviet terrain to supply the people of Berlin, Germany!
It was a massive operation that went on for a year. The airlift brought food and supplies to the people of Berlin. My uncle took part in it as a pilot.
Becuase France had set up a blockade in east Africa and the people of Spain couldn't get their supplies that they needed very much
The Berlin Blockade and airlift were important for the development of the Cold war because it was one of the first crises which happened during the Cold War. The Berlin Blockade changed many people's lives in West Berlin as the Soviets had blocked food supplies, energy supplies and gas to West Berlin by closing all roads and railways. This lead to the USA and Britain having to supply West Berlin by sending airplanes filled with… Read More
Yes, they kept people from leaving their side of the border. No, we still got supplies through to them.
Stalin closed all roads, railways and canals leading to Berlin. This meant that the people of West Berlin would starve: therefore, the USA, France and Britain flew in supplies of flour, coal, milk and food. This continued until Stalin lifted the Blockade in 1949.
After WWII? The Berlin Airlift dropped food and other supplies on East Berlin which was at the time controlled by the Soviet Union. The Marshall Plan also helped to rebuild Europe's economy.
As I understand it nobody died due to the Soviet blockade of Berlin. The US Air Force began flying in supplies long before that would have become an issue. A few deaths did result from airplane crashes during the airlift operations to supply Berlin. However of course some people did die during the period of the Soviet blockade of Berlin but those were from the usual causes people die from and were not directly connected… Read More
How did the US become involved in conflict with the Soviet Union so soon after the close of World War 2?
The Soviet Union was treating their newly conquered people very badly. So America began to send supplies. This Angered the soviet union because they were afraid that the people would like the american government better than theirs so the built the Berlin wall. After that america dropped in supplies from the air. This angered the Soviets even more for not respecting their wishes. It all went down hill from there.
The Berlin Airlift was intended to supply the western part of Berlin with basic supplies. American and British planes supplied the basic needs to the people without the fear of getting shot down by Stalin. Stalin feared that shooting down the planes would cause world war three.
There are no cons, other than the usual logistical problems which is part of life. The people needed food and medical supplies...we supplied it. It was worth it.
You probably mean Berlin airlift. Stalin felt it a problem that the people living in the Russian zone could see the prosperity in the other three zones (French, British, American). As he could not remove the Allies from Berlin, he ordered to close all the railroads, roads and canals that entered West Berlin through the Russian zone.This way he wanted to cut off all the supplies of food and fuel as well. In West Berlin… Read More
When russia cut off western supply routes to berlin the us and great britain responded with the berlin airlift true false?
True. The Berlin Airlift was a direct response to the USSR cutting off supply routes. By doing this, the U.S. and Great Britain were able to get supplies to people in need who wouldn't have gotten them any other way.
The broke this blockade with the famous Berlin Airlift. The US and Great Britain sent planes over West Berlin to drop supplies for the people to survive for a while going from May 12, 1949 started a year back in June 27, 1948 when Stalin released the blockade.

When the Russians took over their sector in Germany and created East Germany they began to cordon off the east from the west. In June 1948 the Russians closed all highways, railroads, and canals from the western occupied Berlin. They wanted to make it impossible for the people in the western sectors to get food or other supplies. The objective was to drive the western nations out of Berlin for good. However, the west decided… Read More
It was important because the US rightfully owned one fourth of Berlin, Germany. This and the spliting of Germany into three parts (Soviet Union, United States and Great Britian) was established at the Potsdam Confrence on July 17th to August 2, 1945. We could not let the people in West Berlin just starve, which most likely would have happened if we had not flew food into Berlin, so William Tunner and FDR came up with… Read More
Apart from the tools - possibly rock hammers, copper chisels, they needed food, drink, and a place to sustain the people involved and living accommodation.
The people of Berlin Ronald Reagan The citizens of Berlin.
They did not. Most people tried to escape east Berlin, and get to West Berlin or West Germany.
Because a lot of people crossed the Berlin wall. people wanted to escape communism and Berlin was the best place to do this, people were willing to risk their lives escaping
In 2010, there were 5,524 people in Berlin, Wisconsin.
Berlin has many restaurants!
He was mad about it but he didn't actually do anything until the British, French and US produced a new currency (the Deutchmark). He then felt that the countries were going against what was agreed at Potsdam so he blockaded all communications into West Berlin for Britain, France and the USA. The countries couldn't get any supplies into West Berlin so the people were starving. This began the Berlin Airlift.
aroun 5000 homeless people live in Berlin
The people helped West Berlin by sending airlifts in 1948.
No, it was after the war. At the end of WW2 Berlin was divided into 4 sectors. One American, one English, one French and one Soviet. The Soviet sector became East Berlin and the Soviets started building the wall at the end of the 1950's. This is when the cold war started. West Berlin was on one side and the East the other. The wall was built to keep people in and to divide the… Read More
The Berlin Wall affected the people of west Berlin in various ways. They were denied entry into the West and this limited their development. They could not detach from the communist Europe.
Berlin. It surrounded West Berlin, so people couldn't get from communist East Germany into Capitalist West Berlin.
The people were very angry and started to dislike the government...... The people wanted to go to the Democratic side (West Berlin) The population of Berlin were very unhappy with the Berlin wall, it was restricting people's everyday activities. People who lived in East Berlin, but worked in West Berlin and vice versa could not go to their jobs. Many people were suddenly, temporarily unemployed and struggling to find jobs to make a living and… Read More
yes, people from almost any nation live in berlin.
They don't, Berlin is the capital of Germany.
The American people had fewer supplies but the British people got more supplies :)
The Berlin Wall was patrolled by soldiers on the East German side and they had orders to fire on people trying to climb over the wall to West Berlin.
Berlin is the capital of Germany, the Dutch live in the Netherlands (i.e. two different countries).. so people from Berlin are most likely German.
How was the Berlin Wall and symbol of Cold War? What did challenges did President Kennedy face in negotiations about the divisions in Berlin?
people might feel very happy because there relative might live in east Berlin or west Berlin AND THEY MIGHT NOT NEED VISA FOR IT NOW
In 1961 the government built a wall between East and West Berlin to stop people from escaping.
It took 46,000 people, 23 years to build the Berlin wall.
We have people that get on big ships that are full of supplies for the people of Haiti, and we sail the ship to haiti to deliver the supplies to the people that need them.
separated the east side from the west side of Berlin. It was built to prevent people from escaping from the eastern half of Berlin.
