A parade of the times (PICs), JFK and Adenauer, 1963

MERCEDES BENZ 300D 1960 with JFK and Adenauer by RIO

In June of 1963, Chancellor Konrad Adenauer of West Germany hosted President John F. Kennedy, and they used the Chancellor's official Mercedes to drive through cheering crowds to the Berlin Wall. These were Mr. Kennedy's words:
"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!'" (June 26, 1963)
