The Free University of Berlin (German: Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, often abbreviated as FU Berlin or simply FU) is a public research university in Berlin. It emphasizes on political science and the humanities. The university utilizes its German name without translation on its English-language website. The Free University of Berlin was founded in West Berlin in 1948 with American support during the early Cold War period as a Western continuation of the Friedrich Wilhelm University, or the University of Berlin, whose traditions and faculty members it retained. The Friedrich Wilhelm University (which was renamed the Humboldt University), being in East Berlin, faced strong communist repression; the Free University's name referred to West Berlin's status as part of the so-called Western Free World, a propaganda term to point out the contrast to communist-controlled East Berlin.
