Marshall Plan at the National Building Museum. The European Recovery

Program, named after Secretary of State George Marshall who

importance of the program and how it created a legacy for close

cooperation between Western Europe and the United States. Chancellor

Kohl’s remarks are translated by an interpreter. Actor Cliff Robertson portrayed General Marshall and delivered Marshall’s remarks upon winning the 1953 Nobel Peace Prize.
