MAUERFÄLLE (falling Walls) – the project
Two decades ago, we Germans achieved something that no-one at that time expected or believed possible. In 1989 we brought down the Wall. One year later the division of Germany was over. With self-determination, it proved possible to achieve unity and freedom in Germany. After four decades of division, Germany was once again a fully sovereign state. For many young people, the Wall, German division and the GDR are already history. The Mauerfälle project aims to elucidate this time and encourage the further unity of Germany with civic involvement, democracy and tolerance; working towards a future of opportunities and the further unification of Europe. We wish to warmly invite you to participate in this dialogue!The Mauerfälle educational tour and workshop is an initiative of the VNG – Verbundnetz Gas Aktiengesellschaft, Leipzig, in collaboration with participating municipalities and in co-operation with the Saxon Education agency, Deutsche Gesellschaft e. V. and the Stiftung Friedliche Revolution.
