Brief report. Berlin

Identifier: M085.10.0198.00014


Congressman Peter H. Dominick (R-Colo.) delivers several installments of his radio address, a Brief report, from Berlin, Germany. Rep. Dominick discusses the recent call-up of reservists to combat communist aggression, his tour of American military bases in Europe and how they prevent the spread of communist control, and his views on freedom versus communism. He also talks about a number of other topics including the day-to-day lives of Germans living in East Berlin versus those living in West Berlin, Soviet influence in East Germany, the Berlin Wall and how it separates German families and friends, and fallout shelters in West and East Berlin. Dominick interviews his nephew, Gare Dominick, who is a member of the military stationed in Germany. Gare answers questions about the lives of the East Germans, the possibility of a revolt against the East German government and entry points between East and West Berlin. Rep. Dominick also gives tape editing directions to an individual named Walt[er Morgan?], discusses concerns about the release of his nephew's comments on U.S. foreign policy while he is on military duty, and talks about changes to his itinerary in Western Europe and the Middle East.
