20 YEARS OF PEACEFUL REVOLUTION AND GERMAN REUNIFICATION

2009/2010 was the 20th anniversary of the peaceful revolution and reunification of Germany. The Federal Foundation and the Hertie Foundation have therefore prepared a poster exhibition on the historical and political context. Foreign-language versions of the exhibition and their presentation abroad have been funded by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The exhibition highlights the events that occurred at that time. These include, for example, the protests at the falsification of the East German elections, the movement of refugees and the mass protests that forced the SED dictatorship to its knees. The exhibition explains, among other things, the German-German solidarity and the foreign policy choices involved in restoring German unity.
