The Quest for Political Stability in Germany

Tour Introduction

At a time when many modern states have fragmented into ethnic splinters – the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, for example – Germany has achieved something almost unique: the formation of a new, united nation from two diametrically opposed political and economic states. This journey has not been smooth; hundreds of GDR citizens lost their lives and countless thousands of others were imprisoned.

Even after re-unification the economic difficulties facing citizens of both states continues to pose problems. What has been achieved is astonishing with modern Germany dominating the European Union and determining the financial fate of other member states.

Based in Berlin this tour will look at how unification was achieved and the degree to which it has succeeded.
