John F. Kennedy Haus in Berlin:
Your freedom is at the heart of it all
In historic tradition
‘All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin. And, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words: Ich bin ein Berliner.’
John F. Kennedy spoke these words on the balcony of Schöneberg Town Hall in 1963 and they reverberated around the world. West Berlin was an island, a few square kilometres of free world in the midst of the so-called Eastern bloc. With his famous speech, John F. Kennedy became a beacon of hope for many people and to this day these words symbolically represent an unwavering commitment to one of the most important human rights: freedom.
Today, 50 years later, Berlin is the capital of a united Germany and a place of this very freedom in the heart of Europe.
John F. Kennedy Haus on Washingtonplatz – the new centre of Berlin – is therefore not only a homage to the great American president, but to the freedom of each and every one of us.
