Ich Bin Ein Berliner

By June 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Ich bin ein BerlinerFifty years ago today, President John F. Kennedy stood near the Berlin Wall and said the famous words, "Ich bin ein Berliner" ("I am a citizen of Berlin"). His intention was to express solidarity with the people of Berlin, but some say his German grammar was so poor that what he actually said was, "I am a jelly donut." It's an urban legend.
