Fifty years ago during the Cold War the President of the United States gave a programmatic speech in Berlin-Dahlem. Freie Universität Berlin has created a special website to commemorate the visit of the President of the United States and the founding of the John F. Kennedy Institute 50 years ago. Kennedy's speech, many images, memories, and documents are now accessible online.
It is 3:20 p.m. on June 26, 1963. A crowd of nearly 20,000 gathers on the campus of Freie Universität, in Berlin’s Dahlem district. They have come to hear the man who is driving up to the Henry Ford Building right now, in a Lincoln Continental convertible with Washington license plates. And they won’t be disappointed: A few minutes later the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, starts his highly acclaimed speech at Freie Universität Berlin.
