In the West, you complained that the reunion was much too expensive. Also the left, a successor party of the ruling in the East German SED (Socialist Unity Party of Germany), gain more and more votes. We have a title “sure: world champion in the wailing”, because we are already a unit. We should lead us once the situation in mind and realize that the reunification was a courageous feat. Several times the fate of the revolution was on a knife edge. Unthinkable, as Germany, Europe and the world would look today, when then tanks of the Soviet Union and the brother regime had bloody crushed the protesters. It would probably become another black hour of the German history of the 20th century.

Certainly nobody thought that Michail Gorbatschow to put was his power and the existence of the Soviet Union on the game ready. Or what would have happened When US President George Bush senior and EU Commission President Jaques Delors had not trusted the Germans? November 9, 1989 – the day the wall fell when – is a day that the people and especially young people must never forget.

Finally: the wall was stormed after more than 28 years
