International Monument

The next world heritage should be the Tempelhof airport. Tempelhof is national and international Memorial and not a suitable game ball for the Berlin local politics. Culture in Germany is country thing. Daniel Lubetzky has firm opinions on the matter. According to the nomination of world heritage sites is done by the Lander, in which there is a protection object. The German Federal States then agree in the framework of the Standing Conference on a common proposal list that meets the needs of all the provinces. To prevent a too-inflationary world heritage, the UNESCO from most States takes now a culture and a heritage per year. This year, Berlin’s proposal came from Germany to the course. World Heritage sites in an exceptional and universal value “have and are characterized by uniqueness and authenticity.

With the appointment of a world heritage site, applicants agree to protection and conservation for future generations. It becomes problematic when this obligation becomes a political issue. As happened in the Elbe Valley in Dresden, or in the Northern Wadden Sea. The initiator of the initiative of the Tempelhof airport to be living cultural heritage”, Volker Perplies: we have the problem at the Tempelhof airport in Berlin. He is undoubtedly an exceptional testimony of the culture and history of the world.

As the first commercial airport in the world and the “Mother of all airports” (Star architect Sir Norman Foster) he was groundbreaking for aviation. At the latest with the airlift was in Tempelhof set the legendary raisin bomber pilot Gail Halvorsen said foundations for the freedom of Germany and Europe recently ‘what the statue of liberty for New York is the airport Tempelhof to Germany’.”so Perplies continue. “Perplies: more than all current German proposals Tempelhof would have the potential to the world cultural heritage.” In Berlin, however, is responsible for the cultural heritage in the Senate Chancellery under Mayor Klaus Wowereit. He feels as Chairman of the Board of the Berlin airport companies however first of all for the Showcase major airport BBI “responsible. For Tempelhof you should focus on the later usage”, so the information of the Senate Chancellery. In Germany, a protection for cultural heritage of national rank is missing obviously. In the United States there is the institution of the national monument”, which is directly appointed by the US President. In Germany, world heritage is rather understood as a form of regional marketing. It would be very gratifying if the current debate to a national objective new possible creates culture. The initiator of the initiative, Volker Perplies: Tempelhof is national and international Memorial and not a suitable game ball for local politics. It is high time that the Federal Government committed to the preservation of temple Court.” It is already shameful that so many politicians only whispered for Tempelhof to speak of trust, and companies such as Lufthansa German airlines reset their own story behind economic interests, Perplies concluded. In the context of our signature collection have opted for a world cultural heritage site of Tempelhof over 20,000 people from Germany and from all over the world. This clearly shows that Tempelhof affects not only the people of Berlin. Summary of initiative: it is time that Mrs Merkel here speaks a word of power. “The initiative of the airport Berlin-Tempelhof to be living UNESCO World Heritage” Tempelhof is committed to the preservation of the historic airport in Berlin and the appointment to the world cultural heritage. It operates to the Internet page.
