The Path to German Unification

This exhibit was created by the Federal Foundation for the Study of the Communist Dictatorship in Germany and by the Federal Foreign Office. It explored the events leading up to the reunification of East and West Germany, reunification itself, and the aftermath of reforming what had been a divided country into one. It also showcased international reactions to German reunification, and the integration of reunified Germany into the European Union, and its development as a leader therein.
