Yesterday we went to the underground station at ‘Platz der Luftbrücke’.
The following is what Peter wrote in a Facebook note.
‘This station was originally called “Kreuzberg”. When they built the “Tempelhof Airport” it was called “Flughafen”.
After the Blokade and the Airlift of 1948 / 49 they renamed it again. This time it became “Platz der Luftbrueke” in memory of the Airlift
It is the only station without ceiling support. When I was a little boy, during the war, we children went their every evening to pick up our mother after she came back from work.’
This underground station is in the area where Peter grew up. He has so many memories about this place.
