В 1946 году Уинстон Черчилль произнес речь в Вестминстерском колледже в Фултоне

This speech is now called a keynote one, as it contained the lines about an iron curtain coming down on the territory from Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic. Though the iron curtain between the Bolsheviks and civilized world had been mentioned by Clemenceau and Goebbels before, it was the speech by Churchill which was heard and spread about. Do you think that this date is interesting for philosophers and historians alone? It is not so, as engineers also take interest in it. The iron curtain is not only a metaphor. The fire-stopping barrier between the stage and audience hall was suggested in late 18th century in Lyon and became mandatory for all theaters. As it turned out, including the political one.
