1963: U.S. President John F. Kennedy gives his "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech in West Berlin, underlining the support of the United States for democratic West Germany shortly after Soviet-supported East Germany erected the Berlin Wall. The speech is considered one of Kennedy's best and a notable moment of the Cold War.
