Eleven months of infrequent electric light, just two hours of cooking electricity a day and only a few briquettes - how did the people of West Berlin manage?
The special exhibition looks at the diverse inventiveness during the Berlin Blockade of 1948/49.
It tells of vegetables in powder form, school lessons by candlelight, chickens in the living room - and the risk of supplying a city of millions from the air.
Anyone who wants to can also contribute their own ideas to this exhibition. Share your survival knowledge with other visitors to the exhibition.Translated with DeepL
