"tempelhof airport" Discussed on Real Dictators
"At 10 p.m. it was plain touches down at Berlin's tempelhof airport. His pale, gaunt, and shaking. The Reichstag fire and the spurious communist uprising had given Hitler the opportunity to exert his grip on power. Now, the trumped up notion of a right-wing coup has given him the excuse in one fell swoop to murder his remaining rivals. Over June 30th, to July 1st, 1934. More than 200 people are killed without trial. Some say, up to a thousand. Many gunned down in their own homes in front of their families. This passage in Nazi infamy will soon be given a name. The night of the long knives. Yet there is one man whom Hitler simply can not bring himself to execute. The one name on the list that remains on ticked. Ernst rohm. They've long been very close, Hitler and Rome had long worked together and trusted each other and Hitler does seem to momentarily hesitate here in his cell Rome is still convinced he'd be given a trial. A chance to clear his name. But goring gives it to the Führer's strait. You just can't rub out everybody else and let the leader go free. It makes no sense. The next day, Sunday July 1st, Hitler hosts a Tea Party in the Reich chancellery garden for the families of his staff. It's a delightful affair. The sun is out, there is laughter, children play. Against this idyllic backdrop, Hitler issues the order. Rome will be afforded the chance of an honorable exit. At around 6 p.m. in Munich stadelheim prison. SS brigade Führer, teodor aika, arrives with two subordinates. They proceed to sell four 7 four. They find Rome lying on his bed with his shirt off, sweating away and stifling heat. I could thrust the day's newspaper at him. Detailing the suppression of the coup Rome had supposedly been leading. You have forfeited your life, he announces. The Führer gives you one more chance to draw the right conclusions. He places a loaded browning pistol on the table with a single round in its chamber and leaves. After 15 minutes, no gunshot has been heard. They reenter. Rome isn't playing ball. If I am to be killed, he shouts, that Adolf do it himself. They pull their weapons out and shoot roam dead. There's a real sense to think that Hitler passes the point of no return after the merger from and it's bound to leave Hitler a little more isolated also. He's turned his back on a core part of his support and the essay is an organization is clearly going to be riven with some doubts and some anger after the killing of Rome. Why is this happened? Why has Hitler seemingly turned on the very people who have built his revolution? So there's a real moment of Shakespearean drama for the regime. Professor Thomas Weber Hitler was selling this as attempted revolution as an attempted coup, and that is certainly untrue. However, there are various reasons to believe that Ernest Rome had been speaking to, for instance, monarchists at that time on how to set up a different kind of fair drive. I mean, maybe from Rome's perspective, this was not meant against Hitler, but Hitler would have certainly seen this as a challenge to his power, Hitler was very good at presenting himself as the person who wasn't really responsible for the violence of the Third Reich. And through the night of the long knives, Hitler played into this expectation because supposedly, he was trying to kind of put violence down and to create a less violent Third Reich. Of course the opposite is the case, but that was kind of the perception. Hitler will shortly make an announcement. A cessation of the weekend's cleansing action. General blomberg lavishes praise on Hitler, but the soldierly determination and exemplary courage he shown in crushing the traitors and mutineers. Blomberg should be thrilled. Within a year, the essay will have been halved in size. Its duties restricted to overseeing sports activities and basic training. They will have a new leader that duplicitous Viktor lutze. But the night the low knives was greeted almost with universal horror overseas as being evidence that this was a gangster state. But in Germany, there's a very, very large amount of schadenfreude, a mixture of surprise, gratitude, relief, and not a little gloating. This reflected I think the idea that ants were gotten too big for his boots, and there was a chance now to restore some public decorum to Germany. President Hindenburg is said takes word of the killings most calmly. This nasty attempt to overthrow the German state. It's a mighty good job, this Hitler fellow had the presence of mind to stamp it out. Adding a sickening signature to the slaughter. Hitler sends Rudolf Hess on a mission. To comfort the widows and families of the deceased. They died as martyrs, he tells them. Gregor stresses wife and Ernst Rome's mother are offered generous financial compensation. The elderly frau Rome refuses hers. She'll take no blood money from her boy's murderers. The SS officers responsible for the killing are all commended and given Henri daggers. Military officers are forbidden from attending schleicher's funeral. Hitler makes amends with papen. The house arrest, the killing of his press officer, is speechwriter? It was all in dreadful mistake. Papua knows he's lucky to be alive. His continued existence is now at Hitler's personal whim. On July 13th, when the Reichstag reconvenes, Hitler makes an impassioned speech about how the fatherland was saved from destruction. In this hour, I was responsible for the fate of the German nation and thereby the supreme judge of the German people. If 13 members of the Reichstag were murdered in the process, no.

Yeah, That's part of why it is abandoned today because it was so dangerous to land there with the mountains in the high rise buildings is actually known as the Kai Tak Heart attack working the runway. So in 1998 there Humanae botched landings and close calls. They decided to just shut it down. And that on again again. I thought they were going to turn that into a golf course. But it's still standing as it is, isn't it? Yeah, it's um Airport been replaced by different airport now, and so it's just kind of getting there in a different place in a very doing a manmade island away from all those tall buildings, but But this is really valuable real estate in Berlin and in Hong Kong. Why hasn't hasn't been torn down? Yeah, That's a good question. I mean, I think that you know, urban explorers continue, Tio frequent them, and I think they had for gotten And do you think could be really expensive to tear down and you know they get slowed down the bureaucracy and all for nothing so It is definitely valuable real estate. But you know, I think, and he sort of municipal construction like that takes a lot of time.

But all yet when it opened, it was lauded as this amazing step towards peace in the Middle East Palestinian getting their own airport And then just a few years later, in 2001, Israeli forces destroyed the airport. They bombed it in response to Palestinian militant attacks Sort of in retaliation, though. Yeah, The rooms of guitars are still there and today it's mostly used as like scrap metal and construction materials by locals. You mean you mean they could just go and pick up chunks of cement and metal and take it and use it themselves? Yeah, exactly. And it's not being used for anything else right now.

"For intensive bouts of right that's where I first catch up with we'll try to catch up with the running for a bus it's early in the morning and the sun is shining directly into the windows of the same box seven meddling catches every day she doesn't write to the apartment she's renting a days instead to a cafe the same cafe near the old Tempelhof airports in the south of the city catching the same box six six arriving at the cafe more or less as it opens yes I mean is it console you'll retain part of my routine and I realize there's something about reading and all that feels so frightening and there's so much to temples and it's such a long process but the level of doubt is that there was something about just waking up medically just popping out of bed automatically knowing that I would catch the bus at this time without even thinking about it it was just sort of like I just go in there it's sort of meant that that anxiety the thing that says don't bother Somerset you thing is a mess you never gonna put it just doesn't have time to sit in because I'm just thinking right now I must address is letters I was put on my shoes now I know the best I will go and sit down I'll open my laptop and I'll begin it's like that I will begin becomes part of the automatic persons see that doubt is something that Madeline constantly talks about which surprises me that someone who has had so much success with a loss book should be very worried about the next one it strikes me that overcoming this fear is a crucial part of the creative process that's why the regular retains the fixed points in her day are so important small certain teams amid the colossal uncertainty of the book if you like you there's this thing but you haven't identified yet your mapping its party trying to understand how it functions how it relates to itself what what it's part time possibly that you're missing the whole system of the thing you know do you ever feel overwhelmed sometimes I feel overwhelmed I'm nine in capacity I don't feel overwhelmed by it I think it I feel like it is blameless it's my fault that I it's taking me so long to see it I can see in the dark it it's it's not possible but and it takes a long time for the ice to test so the thing itself is not to blame it's just that I can't I keep bumping into the miles away I keep going through the same door over and over again you know like their other doors I just can't find them perhaps this insurgency to find these elusive door was that means that at the moment she is still working her way through the first draft of her novel some two years after starting it could it be that her anxiety about the book and whether it will ever see the light of day stems from its complexity during the course of making this program I spend quite a bit of time with Madeleine talking about this book and I have to be quite honest I'm still not sure what it's about here in Berlin she's working out the insurrection characters both imaginary ones this fourteen year old girl and her father is quite ill and grill spinners hi nine and the point difference the Chinese pilot the German political theorist Hannah Arendt Dutch philosopher Spinoza and Chinese poet du fu from the Tang dynasty and also the English writer Virginia Woolf old cultural figures from vastly different historical times coming together in one place they live in a building called the C. bit by bit we learn the story of how this building came to be but this basically is a building that also no longer exists these are the ideas the interrelationships and historical dynamics that match the needs correcting with the noisy but also cozy and warm cafe as she sits with her laptop I come here I read a bit backwards to no one I did yesterday but I don't need to fly backwards because the doctor said in may okay fast it's like you're building a complex structure but still at the moment the legs are the foundation is a bit rickety the first hour and a half is always the best like it and I've always surprises me when I look at my clock and realize it's only seven fifty three or eight twenty and I think oh my god I've been literally to the bone back in that how it's such a weird experience but I think it's true for a lot of writers and it's true for me that that early morning the brain is the sharpest the most focused most able to concentrate and the other thing I have is that it's a turn off anyway this could connect to the internet and I don't think my power cord because I want to be conscious of the fact that it's battery is running down and there's not a moment to waste so there's no time to write an email actually and there's no time to like check whatever lines is known on the battery is really only wants me to write do you have a target with no it's really helps when things are going well the next I still try to get down to pages double spaced even if the next immediately but he never write really very quickly it's really just a sentence and then generally one or two pages comes but by the end of four or five hours will have done that even if it's been painstaking this is a trick of the mind of the non acidic you try to convince yourself you're not the one writing it and it is it really complex brain space that that goes into for me the noise of the cafe seems overwhelming how can you concentrate with the incessant sentiments of coffee machines cutlery and people to the man is a way of drowning all the vitamins when I was writing the last number that really obsessed with black and white box Goldberg variations that piece of music really seen the other number but one can't go back to the same piece of music so I was listening to all sorts of different things it has to be a using rich enough that it can hold multiple kinds of worlds so when I came across was not a single piece of music but it was just one particular record but the **** close to this particular album has the last three to open the heart and stick and it's something about the range of those pieces and the way they speak to each other and their home it seems to be working really well so I just have the album on a loop with Beethoven Plano headphones I leave Madeline to do some work and come back a couple of hours later when both her computer and her writing creative battery of run down ten surprisingly is still quite emotional from the the couple pages I was just working on when my not quite con R. and Hannah leaves this internment camp in the south of France and walks to one tomorrow service studying maps I was looking at the map says trying to think which route maybe they would have taken notice like in June and then she running late so you'll see pages are you going by correcting editing almost at the same time also because I think what's happening is that I move forward and I remember seen earlier I realize something and I just changed a certain phrasing thirty pages back or use a different you know it is still in my head like it is so it's almost like you're connecting it across from the change yeah it strikes me that a major challenge with this book when Madeline is mixing and imagine re narrative with real people is that she needs to remain true not only to the characters but also to the very real his screens and that's why we are now setting off to find where the real hand I don't want to leave when she was in Berlin she she lived here back in the twenty nine to thirty three what number was it that she lived th th the phone is in full unless she's on the other side of the road now that you've being posted hello almost like just everyday ness of what it would be like to walk from certain types of positions a here here some of the birds I think it helps because in a way when I'm wrestling with in this book is the idea that that their lives are converging even though they lived in different times that the questions are are reflecting off each other that the questions are converging almost more than anything that that were just walking over the same spaces each other I think that's what it comes down to so that when I go sometimes in visit the places honest and in the places it's it's to make physical what the book is trying to do if you total for the book now have a working title which which will remain buried in the depths but I have I don't have to tell you that I hope will come in the titles launching portent for you at this stage the working title is it's almost like a reminder to not forget certain things in a in a way it was when I needed to remind myself is that this can't be in a book that takes place in the mind is a lot about philosophers and thinking about it I I need to to always make things part of the physical world part of a world we can imagine and touch and feel like a new term share with the title is why because it is too personal yes to personal ends when I decide that it's ready to go into the world it will go with its name right now its name is part of its private while still in the private space in a way in the in the place where the thinking is still being done you know and still still working itself you're listening to in the studio from the BBC world service with me okay prank following Madeleine Thien she grapples with the ever changing first draft of a new note I still think there's a good thirty forty percent chance that it will just collapse the whole thing would just fall apart and not to pay I think that's possible I feel like I am I am on the cusp of of of that it that it just is unlockable and we'll see if there's too much going on it's a fascination for me but possibly for no other person on this earth thing is thank god I've had eight anymore but let's just say eight in ten months thinking D. please about the what do you do for the life of and thinking of spinners set how could that possibly be a waste any second for me that seems and then that is what I'm looking for and starting a new book that even if the book never came to fruition this was what I wanted to spend the next five years the another street another continent it's now September and I'm in the United States more precisely in the New York borough of Brooklyn NY the university women's gym teachers this poll when we last met he was back in March yes that's right what's happened since I was a very liberating like six months in Berlin I had a very rigorous schedule I was very disciplined about three to five hours a day I somehow managed to get two hundred pages in those five or six months which I thought would be the total size of the book but it looks like I'm halfway this is somewhat she is preposterous is it alone how it's growing it was alarming in the last few weeks because I realized it was growing and and living in a very exciting way but that its structure was very loose and as much as I was enjoying that process of discovery I also knew it wasn't hanging together so how do you struggle with I mean they've come to see me is a bit of a struggle I I thought that I would just go with the degenerative the discovery part of it for the for that time and because I knew I would have to stop for about five or six weeks and I figured in that five or six weeks I could think about what this thing is I'm in during that.
