1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 1

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.

1949 · NATO is Established

Age 2

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an alliance between 29 North American and European countries. The agreement of the alliance is to help defend each other if attacked by an external country. The last country to enter was Montenegro in 2017.


Age 3

Name Meaning

English and German: from the personal name Casper (in English this is a variant of Jasper , in German a variant of Kaspar and Kasper ), Latin Caspar(us), Gaspar(us). It is widely understood to be from the Persian word gazbar ‘treasurer’, and was ascribed by popular tradition in Europe to one of the three Magi (see also Baltazar and Melchior ) who according to the Bible (in which they are not named) brought gifts to the new-born Christ. Their supposed remains were taken to Cologne from Constantinople in the 12th century; hence the popularity of the name Casper and its variants in Germany and elsewhere in central Europe. In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed cognates from other languages, e.g. Polish Kasper , Czech Kašpar (see Kaspar ), Croatian Gašpar (see Gaspar ), and Slovenian Gašper (see Gasper ), and also their derivatives.
