Khrushchev thinks Kennedy's weak and decides to put in Communist Cuba missiles. The Russians deny and then we create a naval blockade.  Behind the scenes of this tense time:  There was the foreign minister of Russia was intensely negotiating to take the missiles America had out of Turkey.  Dean of Columbia was to take this proposal to the secretary general that would be under the guise of the UN.  Because of this these things countries treaties wanted to not be part of treaties creating third world nations.  Kennedy dies in 1963.  Other things that are happening are cultural explosions of the 1950's and the 1960's of consumerism.  Young people start having different ideas about what they want to see. New voices become heard.  Lebensborn o Women's program, where brothels were for German soldiers on the battlefront and create
