Celebrating 20 Years of Unity:

On October 3rd, 1990 the GDR was officially united with the Federal Republic of Germany. After decades of separation, Germans lived in one state again. That day, and not the Fall of the Wall on November 9, has since been the German National Hollyday.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of German Unity, the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles joins forces with many other organizations in taking stock of the political, social, artistic and architectural ramifications of that historic date.

LECTURES: Drafting a United Germany – HORST TELTSCHIK

Tuesday October 19 @ 4:00 p.m.
UCLA Faculty Center
Sequoia Room

Horst Teltschik studied political science, modern history and international law at the Free University in Berlin. After a short career in academics, he turned to politics full-time. As of 1972 he was a close aid to Helmut Kohl. Following the Fall of the Wall Teltschik was one of the first who argued that the German reunification is an actual possibility. He also organized and was present at the meeting between Helmut Kohl and Gorbachev, in which the Kremlin-leader conceded that the two German states may reunite.
