Why was the Galeries Lafayette built?

== == In 1893, two cousins, Theophile Bader and Alphonse Kahn, decided to open a novelty store at the corner of Lafayette and Chausee d"Antin in the shopping district near the Opera. The store expanded within 3 years and 1 rue Lafayette was purchased in its entirety and in 1905, 38, 40 and 42 Boulevard Haussman were purchased as well as 15 rue Chausee d'Antin. In 1906, Theophile Bader commissioned the Roman award-winning architect George Chedanne and later his student Ferdinand Chanut to design the new layout of the Haussman store. The block of buildings delimited by Haussmann boulevard, Chausee d'Antin, Mogador and Provence streets was redesigned according to Chanut's predilection for oriental bazaars, where the hodgepodge of merchandise and departments was intended to drive customers into a buying frenzy.

Why was there a crisis between the Superpowers over Berlin in 1961?

Following WWII, Berlin was divided into different "Zones." While the Western allies consolidated their zones, the Soviets remained separate and up until the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, the city remained divided. Moreover, Germany itself was divided and Berlin - the former capital - was well behind the East/West line in East (Communist) Germany. As a result Berlin was an outpost of the West in the Soviet sphere of influence. While of only marginal importance tactically, Berlin was the logical flashpoint for US/Soviet flare-ups because of the close proximity of US and Soviet forces and the city's isolation form the rest of NATO. When nuclear war is on the table the discussion of foreign policy changes, particularly between superpowers. Deterrance is the name of the game and deterrance theory requires the "Three Cs" be ruthelessly maintained. Capability - the physical ability to strike, Communication - informing your enemy of the conditions under which you will strike, and Credibility - the enemy's belief that you will follow through on your threats. Both the US and the USSR sought to attain advantage over each other by diminishing each other's credibility. If either could show that the other would back down from nuclear war, the theory went, then the victor in this nuclear powered game of "Chicken" would appear stronger, attrack more allies, and generally fair better. And so the Soviets attempted to instigate crises on what they condidered favorable terms. This would force the United States to either bring out the nukes or let the offense go. Since nuclear war was out of the question, the result would be good for the USSR. Following the first Berlin Crisis and the US repsonse in the Berlin Airlift, the Soviets tried again in 1961 when Berlin was then too large to supply via air. Kennedy responded by driving tanks through the baracades and thus it was Khrushchev rather than Kennedy who did not follow through on a nuclear threat - some say setting the stage for the Cuban Missile Crisis just a year later.
