What Happened To Berlin After the Second World War?
"The end of world war two signaled and unsure future for the defeated germany. Between the alta and potsdam peace conferences it was decided to split germany into four allied zones the eastern part of the country going to the soviet union to control and the western parts going to the united states britain and eventually france west germany was technically the boondocks republik deutschland or federal republic of germany and east germany was the jewish democratic republic german democratic republic or gd are despite berlin sitting entirely in the eastern part of the country. And i constantly have to remind myself. That berlin was nowhere near the east west divide. The city was also divided into similar zones. The mere existence of west berlin a conspicuously capital city deep within the communist east germany quote stuck like a bone in the soviet throat according to soviet leader nikita khrushchev so tenuous where the relations between the east and west that russia began plotting to drive the us britain and france out of berlin for good in nineteen forty eight. A soviet blockade of west berlin was set up blocking off all rail and road access in an effort to starve the western allies out of the city. In one of the most dramatic standoffs in the history of the cold war the berlin blockade saw the us and its allies supplying their sectors of the city from the air known as the berlin airlift. The allied nations flew in more than two point. Three million tons of food fuel and other supplies over the course of a year until the soviets finally gave up an the blockade things. Were relatively calm for a while. But in the late nineteen fifties. The soviets noticed a trend. Developing people saw how life on the capitalist side was recovering faster than life on the communist side. Not to mention there were a lot fewer spies keeping tabs on regular folks on the western side and people began to emigrate. This was especially true of doctors. Scientists and skilled professionals resulting in a serious brain drain in the east got worse year. Over year khrushchev ordered the east german government to stop the flow of emigrants for good on the night of the twelfth nineteen sixty one in one night barbed wire barriers blockade and even some sections of brick and mortar wall were constructed. It was later reinforced multiple times to become an impenetrable twelve footer. Three point seven meter high concrete wall. Roughly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty one kilometer. Long complete with no-man's-land. Landmines guard dogs guard towers and checkpoints the relatively fluid border which had until that point allowed some sixty thousand east germans to commute daily to good paying jobs in the west visit. Family and friends attend soccer games and so on was gone with no warning. Whatever side of the border you went to sleep on on august twelve. That was where you stayed for the next twenty eight years. This opposing structure didn't stop people from trying to make a great escape to the west. Roughly one hundred and seventy one people. Some of them defecting soviet soldiers lost their lives trying to cross the border but over five thousand more succeeded and some of them got really creative with it but the first person to cross that foreboding line just hopped over it when the wall was three days old much of it was not actually a wall at all but sections of barb wire fence though with soldiers and police to enforce it one of those was eighteen year old. Conrad shuman stationed at the corner of bernauer. Stresa and opener stresa. He might have been young but he could tell which way the wind was blowing. He wanted out of the gdr like now he pays his feet nervously while chain smoking and occasionally pushing down the barbed wire coil. It was only two feet high. While the other guards were distracted by a gathering crowd shuman swapped out his loaded. Submachine gun for an unloaded and therefore lighter one at four. Pm shoe inflict away. His cigarette took a running start and deathly leapt over the barrier dropping. His gun and just leaving it. As he was whisked into a waiting west german police car a west german journalist captured the leap to freedom in what would become one of the most famous images of the wall until nineteen eighty nine. The west loves shuman but many of the people he left behind considered him to be a lowly traitor even after he was reunited with his family after the fall of the wall a generation later many people still shunned him as a deserter. Shuman was the first soldier from the national people's army to escape. But it's estimated that twenty seven hundred east. German soldiers and policemen followed his example. If someone had turned your home into a prison then you should treat it like a prison and start digging a tunnel in nineteen sixty four thirty students from west berlin spent several months digging a four hundred and seventy six foot or one hundred and forty five meter long tunnel tell people in the east escape one assumes they had to crawl to freedom because the tunnel was only about three feet high less than forty eight hours after it was finished the stasi the german border patrol discovered it but not before fifty seven men women and children had managed to escape. Which i assume is why. It's referred to as tunnel fifty seven

"I wanna give you something that. We shouldn't worry about. We should fix. In the worst thing, we can do is mock a warning like this. The worst thing we can do is avoid looking at it. The worst thing we can do is avoid it for political reasons and I'm gonna show you with the documentary, or I'm sorry, the film Chernobyl, I'm gonna show you how this is very similar to what we're doing right now. But let me give you just one topic. Ebola. We all know how deadly bully as we all know that. It's it's ground zero in the in the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Well, if you're not keeping up on a bull news, which, I don't, you know, generally, don't get the newsletter from bullet dot com. But if we were getting the daily newsletter, you would know that we are now looking at the biggest outbreak the most deadly outbreak of Ebola yet. And where is it? It's centered in the Congo. However, it is spreading beyond the Congo. So here we are. Looking at a few facts Cording to the World Health Organization. The confirmed cases of Bulla have exceeded two thousand in the DRC. Now, I stand corrected is not the largest, it's the second largest directly behind the two thousand fourteen twenty six epidemic. Do you remember what happened in two thousand fourteen thousand sixteen? Somebody got onto a plane and it reached our shores. Luckily, we knew who that person was we knew who those people were, and we cured them here in the United States because they were doctors but we knew exactly who they were. And we quarantine them, do you remember one of the planes that we had to get was a quarantine plane so they were completely isolated in an isolation chamber in that airplane? Now, it Bolla is spreading across Africa. It's no longer contained in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Yesterday. It was reported that it hopped the border over into Uganda. There was a young patient, five years old, that died has to relatives that also tested positive. The department of border patrol. Now, this is where it starts to get interesting for us. The department of border patrol just apprehended a large group of people from Africa. Press release from the border patrol announced on may thirty first that they add have apprehended one hundred sixteen people from Africa trying to cross the Mexican border now of these there was a large group or contingency of those from the Democratic Republic of the Congo again, that's where A Bola is having its its rebirth, and they are not the only people coming in from the DRC to the United States through Mexico Cording to the agents assigned at the eagle pass station. On June fifth. Our border patrol arrested a group of thirty four people from the continent of Africa since may, thirtieth more than five hundred people from Africa. Have come in these groups are primarily made up of family units from the Congo. Now. Where are they? Well, we don't really know we know some of them are in San Antonio. We also know that some of them are now in Portland, Maine. Another group has come in. From the Congo about three hundred fifty migrants. They came through Ecuador to our southern border. They came in there now saying that they because they're fleeing a war zone. That they need asylum. The, the plan is for three hundred and fifty of them to travel from San Antonio to Portland, that's main, by the way. But Portland, Maine said, please don't send us anymore. We're already stretched way beyond our capacity. So now they're looking for other cities that these migrants from the Congo can be sent to. Now this doesn't mean these guys have Ebola. This doesn't mean that we shouldn't take them in if they are really truly fleeing from a war zone. This means we should not dismiss the fact that ISIS was in the Congo recently doing something we don't know what and here's a group of three hundred and fifty people from the Congo, that found themselves able to get across our southern border, somehow or another. They don't speak Spanish and they don't speak French, but they got onto a plane. They flew to Ecuador. They made it all the way through Mexico and across our border without speaking. A word of the language, that's odd the other concern. And this is where it really is should be concerning because we are screening, so many people the physicians at our border are overwhelmed. Ebola is difficult to catch you have to isolate for at least twenty one days, this is why we had something called Ellis Island. If you had a deadly disease, you're quarantined for a while to make sure if you were coming from a place with deadly disease that you weren't bringing it into the United States, but we're not doing that anymore. And if anyone thinks that ISIS just wouldn't weaponize people. You're out of your mind. But why worry about things that are not going to happen, that's going to be called hateful? That's going to be called a mongering that's going to be called everything other than what it is. A truthful look at the facts. And a warning that it may not be these people, it probably isn't, but we should be screening for Bulla and we have a problem on the border. This is a catastrophe of global significance. Just waiting to happen. But we have to be willing to face the truth. But truth is a hard thing. We're going to get to that coming up in just a second. The lesson learned from. You spend more time in.

The high donation dates back Fouteen thousand years, but it's one hundred and fifty years ago. What settlers and Christian missionaries arrived? They bought with them smallpox and other diseases before their arrival. It's sorta around ten thousand people lived on the islands by nineteen fifteen fewer than six hundred the missionaries burnt toppled, many of the totem Pole's they encountered viewing them as pagan affronts to good then came a fresh onslaught against the Haida in the shape of Canada's residential school program, which ran from the nineteenth century until nineteen Ninety-six. The program was designed to forcibly removed first nation children from their families and re educate them, local languages and coach were banned around one hundred and fifty thousand children were taken from their communities. Many were subjected to terrible physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Some died.

"Addis Ababa. Six months since the latest outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo broke out have been something like seven hundred confirmed cases, making it the second largest outbreak in history response efforts continue to be hampered by insecurity and community resistance from the capital Kinshasa, the BBC's guys Cohen any joins us live six months in and given the previous outbreaks in the I in recent years have been contained very quickly. Are people starting to be quite concerned about this one? Well, it depends on who we are talking to and where these people are for example in the Benue region Benny and timber region word able outbreak is rather Jing some people don't believe that Ebola Israel, some of them believe that it's some sort of come for the government to to to get money from the international community or its partners. Or maybe they think it's a political thing that is done to to to prevent them from injuring their political rights, however in other parts of the world country. They take you seriously, and people are worried you will see for example, some offices. They have places where someone can go and wash their hands before you get in in many places. Now, they're taking temperature of people to check if they have Ebola or not. So it is taken seriously, but some members of the community in Benny and Bhutan. They don't believe that people as real. And the difficulty was that Secaucus is the the the difficult areas to operate because of rebel groups in in and around Benny. And so on it's not that easy to go out is it to certain places and convince people that yes voter is real. It's not that easy. Really to know. How many people have got the disease? It's it's not really easy, for example in in bay in timbale. NBC actually, some members of their of their response team have been attacked by community people who thought that oh these guys just coming to joke with us and not do anything. Right. They have been attacked. So there's a lot of work now being involved being put into sensitizing people. But also in rebel areas. It's quite hard to send people we know that they may be kidnapped by armed dribbles. So it's making things hard for the response team. Usually in cases, like these local officials foreign aid groups, and so on say that they're not getting the resources, they need they need greater resources. Let's say to deal with an outbreak on this scale is that the case here as well. So far, we have inherited the ministry of health or even the other members of the response team complain about resources, so far the two things they're complaining about is community resistance, and and insecurity and. That's those are only the two things we've had them complain about. But not really about finances. But the scale of the outbreaks about four hundred and fifty people dead. I mean, that's pretty shocking, isn't it? It is it is. And it's the most devastating actually outbreak. We've had in DRC dear democratic probably go ahead and had ten outbreaks since nineteen seventy six, and this is the most devastating one. Of course, if you look at this level rate, for example, you we see thirty seven percent is not the lowest survival rate. But the thing is fifty seven percent of seven hundred you have more people dead done sixty three percent of thirty five for example. So you can see that it is the most devastating guys reporting to his life from Kinshasa capsule, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It's Japan against Qatar in the UAE in a few hours time, but it's just under twenty four hours since the Asian football. Confederation confirmed that they'd been an official complaint from the host nation about the eligibility of two players who seem certain to feature in that final few as time and we've still had no word from the authorities. Remember Qatar knocked out the UA in the semifinal with thumping four nil victory. Let's talk to the BBC's many jazz may who's been covering the turnament throughout many. What is the latest on? This say we haven't heard anything official was the last thing that we had simply confirmation of that complaint. Yes, I'm getting nothing from the AFC. They the tone of the messages back to me AS Roma's rather exhaust me asking the same questions all the time. I understand that the categories are calm about this. It's all it's all speculation. What the AFC disciplinary an ethics code says is that if a team fails United enjoyable player, then they will forfeit that the matching which they filled it them if they dean to fielded them after competition, then they could be suspended for the next day AFC competition. So the US is a last gasp effort by them to try and get into the final. But the trouble is, of course, that Catta have beaten six teams already with both of these players in in almost every every match and the the question is the nationality eligibility both of these players were born abroad. There's no question about that. But my understanding is that they registered with the AFC on the basis that their mothers were born in Qatar. And that is the point of dispute. You a website has published documents which it says proves that they were born in Iraq and Sudan respectively. But it's it's unclear we still don't know what the AFC we'll do about his appeal. We'll wait and say as I say only a few as till the final Ashim he catchall make you onto the pitch later on today. Many you would expect would you not Japan to come out winners the softening? Well, I don't think it's a foregone conclusion not at all. I mean, Japan, far less impressive and cata.

Now we used to hearing. That Russia is trying to influence world events on social media. Now, it's there on Facebook is closed down nearly eight hundred pages and the number of groups and accounts apparently linked to Iran that describing them as inauthentic accounts aimed at influencing opinion in more than twenty countries. So as Facebook now taking tougher action against those believed to deliberately use it to influence elections or undermine democracy. Cybersecurity expert and the presence of secure mental and also author of advanced persistent security, IRA Winkler told me more what Facebook has done has been deleted accounts that have been tied to Iranian actors. And what these accounts have done was to space simulate create fake news sites that have been purported to put out real news. But really they were putting out prop Iranian propaganda along the lines of Russia, say or. The accusation against Russia and Russian linked organizations is they're very actively trying to change elections. For example, is not the case here was this more just pushing an Iranian view on the world. I think it's a little bit of both a lot of the propaganda, frankly is anti Donald Trump because Donald Trump has been going against the US intelligence services on his own, for example, and saying that Iran is still attempting to produce nuclear weapons, which was the exact opposite conclusion of the intelligence community. So they've been kind of focusing on that type of information simultaneously. They also want to change public perception of Iran as not necessarily an enemy of the United States. They also put out pro Palestinian propaganda as well as any of the other interests in the Middle East that they've been trying to push for their own interests in the region. So. All of that sounds like depending on your political perspective true, but not necessarily. Illegal or immoral to try and put those views out there. What what then was the specific problem with the accounts pretending to be something. They weren't. That's exactly the problem. They were pretending to be legitimate local news sources within the United States, like every, you know, every city of any size in the United States tends to have a television station, a radio station or something, and they and a lot of people trust the local stations more than they might trust like an international or national station like the equivalent of a BBC, and they think that the local news is more real than national news. So they try to give that fake impression that their local news is recording these incidents, like it's a fact frankly, either way, whether it's a legal or not these people are pretending to be somebody else on the internet and they're doing so four not good reasons..

"Now this week saw a grim statistic. From the bowler epidemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Fourteen. New cases were reported close to the country's eastern border the largest one day increase since the outbreak was declared back in August last year. Most of the latest cases were in the district of Kotla in North Kivu province, a part of the country plagued by insecurity and conflict. Well, that's raising fears. The disease may spread to a major city. Stacey man's is one of the international aid workers trying to contain the outbreak. She's from the International Rescue Committee and his Inkatha right now. So what is the situation currently where seven hundred and twenty two cases and four hundred thirty nine deaths. The last four weeks in particular have been very challenging the security situation has been very dynamic and volatile in the last month. We've seen. Unrest and protests. We've seen attacks health facilities attacks on response workers the triage structures that we put in place to to screen and identify cases were destroyed by community members. And all of that is taking place on an ongoing background is active conflicts and attacks from rebel groups. Stacy just tell us a bit more about the attacks on treatment centers. Why are those taking place is it because of local suspicion? A combination of factors what we saw in December was directly related to to the election periods. There was an announcement that the populations in Benny and pretend Bo would not be allowed to vote in the national election because of the ongoing outbreak. So as a result of that decision, and that communication, we saw unrest and lots of protests and venues results what about the wider security situation. We know that this part of the Democratic Republic of Congo has suffered a lot of violence over recent years. How is that stopping health workers containing this virus? I mean, essentially, it's affecting the ability of response workers to move when there are active conflict or active kidnapping by the rep groups this disrupts movement. So your response workers be that your surveillance teams or vaccinations games your safe barrel teams that just not able to get to where they need to go. Is it fair to say? If that hadn't been the case, and this could have been contained by now, given how much I guess it's been learned since the outbreak in west Africa. Absolutely. I think the underlying insecurity here has made. This outbreak extremely difficult whether or not without the underlying, insecurity, we would have been the end of this outbreak is impossible tonight. But we do have a good example earlier last year over an Ecuador province DRC. There was an outbreak of a bowler within three months we managed to to contain the outbreak utilizing new tools that we have learned since developed from west Africa such as the vaccine. So absolutely. I think the underlying insecurity here has has made containment today difficult and will make containment moving forward discipline. Yes. What what you need at this stage? Or do you have everything you need apart from the ability to actually get around and do your job? I think there's also a need for more more resources in the response. The case we not only need to spend resources controlling the situation. In some somewhere like Benny, but we also need to maintain those activities there. So as we see the outbreak actually spread further into areas, we actually need more as an agencies and more resources on the ground to support response. And the someone who works in this field and has a lot of experience. I mean, how are you feeling about it at the moment? Are you optimistic that things may start to improve? Or you worried that this is going to start to spiral out of control. I think mixture I mean, it's important also to flag that we have seen some positive developments in this outbreak. We have seen some areas where we have controlled the outbreak. But overall, I think the situation here is very worrying. I don't think that we've seen the height of this outbreak yet. So I think things are likely to get worse. Well likes to see a lot more cases before they get better and the road to the end to fully containing this outbreak is likely to be a long one another Stacey man's of the International Rescue Committee. Speaking to me from north province in the. The Democratic Republic of Congo. You're listening to news from the BBC do stay with us. We've got a lot more to come in the next half hour of the program.

"It is simply too early to tell how William P bar will behave once he is confirmed as the nation's new attorney general at a crucial moment in the timeline of this Democratic Republic. But Muller also has options Muller could but is not expected to indict the president Muller's cautious by the book style is assign. He'll stick to precedent and Justice department guidance, but he doesn't have to Muller apparently could also break precedent by making the report public himself, but the more likely option for Muller if his through the State Department approach appears doomed is to turn his report over to the House Judiciary committee, if his report names Trump as an unindicted co conspirator lawmakers in the now democratically controlled house would be compelled to begin impeachment hearings. Exactly as they did. With Richard Nixon. Congress also has options, especially now that Democrats control the house existing committees in the house, including judiciary intelligence oversight and foreign affairs have the right to subpoena. The Justice department for the Muller report and they intend to use that. Right judiciary. Chairman, Adam Schiff says he and the other Democrats will fight to get that report and to make it public shifts says that for national security reasons parts of the Miller report may have to be redacted. But he says the cases too important the keep from the American people. The White House will put up a fight. And that fight will be epic. The White House no longer has a Republican House to prevent any subpoenas. The White House has already set a precedent for cooperating with congress set when Republicans safely controlled the house to argue against cooperating now would run counter to that president and throw doubt on the motives for suppressing evidence. Still White House lawyers plan to claim executive privilege to try to block big parts of the Muller report. They even plan to claim privilege over communications in the Trump transition team before he became president executive privilege is again, but that's virtually doomed to fail just as it did for presidents, Nixon and Clinton when they tried to use it and were both struck down by the courts there speculation that if the executive privilege gambit fails, the Trump administration will have William bar in the Justice department to help it justify presidential pardons in the Russia affair. Barr had already spoken favorably about pardons in this case. In the meantime, prepare for an epic court battle between the White House, and the congress to our three branches of government before the third of fight that involves then all three branches of government. Prepare also for the Muller report, which may be closer than it appears and which would seem destined to find its way into the hands of the American people.

"It's a new process for resolving asylum cases, used to be it was I come for serve, but as of a year ago, it's the other way around the newest applicants get their cases resolved. I the idea is to help cut a huge backlog of applications by quickly eliminating unqualified ones. But it means that people who've been waiting a long time just have to keep on waiting. Journalists leader Halloween has produced a documentary about one of these asylum seekers his name is Alex Bukasa. He's from Congo, and we're going to hear from him and a couple of minutes. But first, I asked leader how she got Alex's story. So I met Alex at an organization called the main access immigrant network in Portland. Maine. He was interpreted. Printing at a support group meeting for recently arrived francophone immigrants tie that Alex so interpreters how he makes his living. He's been in the country long enough to be working now as an interpreter. Yes. So he arrived in two thousand fourteen applied for asylum do thousand fifteen and once you apply for asylum. There is a waiting period. And then after that waiting period you can apply for a work permit. So he's applied for the work permit, and he works as an interpreter. And he has some other jobs wealth to support himself. A now with lesson. I doubt he's kind of in a waiting game. I mean, there's so much that's unfair in the US immigration system right now. But this seems like kind of a different level of unfairness. Even if you believe there's a good reason for it. How does he take it? All bitter. He really isn't. Actually, I know in talking to him. He obviously does want his case to be heard and he wants to go through the system. But I mean, he's working with people who are going through the system now who arrived after heated, and he just to me seems happy to help them in. It's just kinda patiently waiting for his case to be heard, can you imagine a scenario in which he actually loses his case and as forced to return to the Democratic Republic of Congo or is deported. I really hope that that's not the case. I mean, I think he does have a very legitimate case to to receive asylum in the United States and also he's been here now for quite a few years, and he has a life year, he has job friends. And so it would just yeah. It's hard for me to imagine him going back to the Congo at this point. What is he hearing from his attorney? He actually doesn't have a lawyer. He just applied on his own. He said he's going to get one. But he's just it's just a waiting game for him right now, journalists leader Hollowell now, let's hear an excerpt from her documentary about Alex Bukasa, it's called last in first out.
