Political aspects of Tempelhof Field

Anna Bijak,

Kinga Racoń-Leja

Abstrakt

Jeden z najbardziej interesujących parków w Berlinie – Tempelhof jest nie tylko atrakcyjną zieloną przestrzenią, ale również przykładem złożonej historii odzwierciedlającej aktualne konflikty polityczne. Kiedyś symbol nazistowskiej megalomanii, zapomniane miejsce tragedii wielu ludzi, świadek bohaterskich działań alianckich pilotów podczas Blokady Berlina, niezwykły przykład współczesnego protestu obywatelskiego przeciwko nowej zabudowie deweloperskiej, a całkiem niedawno – największy obóz dla uchodźców w Niemczech. Tempelhof ciągle wzbudza kontrowersje. Aby zrozumieć skomplikowaną sytuację polityczną i znaleźć nowe rozwiązania dla tak trudnego miejsca, artykuł prezentuje zapomnianą historię Tempelhof oraz rolę, jaką odgrywa w Berlinie.

Słowa kluczowe: Tempelhof, Berlin, architecture and politics, urban history, city and film
