    Age 18

    The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.

    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Schneider ‘tailor’ and of its Slavicized (Czech, Slovak, Slovenian, and Croatian) form Šnajder (Czech mostly Šnajdr). The Slovenian and Croatian surname is in most cases derived from the dialect loanword šnajder ‘tailor’. Compare Sneider 1 and Snyder 1.

    Dutch: variant, mostly Americanized, of Snieder or Snijder ‘tailor’ (see Snyder 2).

    In some cases probably also an Americanized form of Slovenian Žnider: variant of Žnidar, from žnidar ‘tailor’, an archaic word of German origin (see Schneider , compare 1 above and Znidarsic ).
