Images from the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1974, the land between the North Sea and the Alps celebrates a Jubilee birthday: on the 24th of May 25 years ago the basic law, the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany, was put into effect.
Thus, the western part of Germany 1949 received a democratic Constitution. Their fathers had thought it as a temporary measure as something temporary, To give the public life for a transitional period - a new order as stated in the preamble of the basic law. However, it loses its validity "on the day on which a Constitution enters into force, which was decided by the German people in free choice". The last article of the final provisions formulated it.
The history was different as it hoped for the constituent Assembly, the Parliamentary Council, 1949. She created new realities: the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic - two States with different social systems are developed on the ruins of the German Empire. The policy of the Federal Government aims to achieve relief for the people of both parts, and to achieve a regulated coexistence of the two States.
In the course of its 25-year history, the Federal Republic of Germany has become to a State which occupies a respected place in the community of Nations in its international responsibility.
The basic law is a Republican, democratic and liberal constitutional Constitution, which created the basis for the political and economic stability of this country. She gave the job to expand the Federal Republic of Germany as a democratic and social State all organs of the State. Since the first Federal Government under Konrad Adenauer, who was sworn in in the autumn of 1949, the realization of this constitutional order at the heart of their policy was for all Governments. The Federal Republic of Germany is committed to the principle of the separation of powers: the mapping of all State violence on the 3 Government Government, Parliament and jurisdiction.
The citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany identify with their State. The high turnout of more than 90 percent in the last elections underlined the interest of the population in the political development of their community.
Today, a man at the top of the Federal Government, which enjoys great prestige in the world stands with Chancellor Willy Brandt. His Government's policy follows the guiding principle of a good neighborhood inside and out, with the aim of social reform and the active peacekeeping. In its 25-year history of the Federal State structure has become the Federal Republic of Germany - he granted a high degree of political autonomy - proven any federal State.
The Federal Republic of Germany consists of 11 countries, including West Berlin. Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Württemberg, Saarland, Bavaria. 1949 Bonn is capital of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Diplomats live here - and politicians. Bonn on the Rhine metropolis, Government Headquarters, looking for a new face. Bonn is, 2,000 years old or more. The gravestones at the City Cemetery are milestones in the German cultural and intellectual history. Composers, writers, scientists - they lived in Bonn, and they loved Bonn - like Ludwig van Beethoven. His birthplace is here.
Today, Bonn is: politics. Meeting place for the world's great. : The guest on the Rhine Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic, welcomes John F. Kennedy, Federal President Lübke the British Queen. Leonid Brezhnev's visit is an expression of cosmopolitan and confident policy, which is made from this city.
The Bundestag - the German Parliament. 518 members plan, discuss, decide for 61 million German citizens. Their working conditions were two decades old University and city officials. But the tasks of a Western industrial society will require new forms of leadership and management.
The new building of the Federal Chancellery geared to the challenges of the future. Bonn dares the last step on the way to a modern Western metropolis.
Transportation of the future - made in Germany. Some German companies have independently developed a new transport system, has a good chance to revolutionize the transport. The Cabinentaxi on Rails - so called the company DEMAG - Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm - their prototype - could soon free the conurbations of the car. On a test track in Hagen the Cabinentaxi proves its benefits for half a year. The drive type is technically new, not least: a linear motor accelerates the cabin up to a top speed of 36 km/h. Wheels with solid rubber bandages provide noiseless ride. The future of transportation - on the test site at Hagen seems they anticipated.
The user presses his destination, the machine is called the fare. The money is paid, the customer receives the ticket. The exit ramp also displays the computer. A second machine on the platform programmed the Cabinentaxi after reading the ticket on the desired destination. A push of a button and the 2-3sitzige rail taxi controls the destination without stopover. The ride runs without vibration and wind noise above or below the road carrier.
The Federal Ministry for research and technology promotes the development of the Cabinentaxis, because it gives the possibility to develop metropolitan areas, old quarter and satellite towns attractive way. Because the noise and emission-free new transport system combines the advantages of a Massenverkehrsmittels with a car - an enticing alternative for all drivers in the densely populated areas of the world.
"That is expressive and uncertain ways archaic. The sculptures unearthed on Easter Island might, not a piece of humor, wink in the game, would be as modern irony. You almost but not quite are metaphors... Keep distinctive things - just by Kriester - which permits all, dream and subject matter in limbo."
Rainer Kriester - for the art criticism of one of the most interesting young sculptors in Germany, - "last but not least, because he recovers lost believed human face in a convincing way the plastic."
Today 38 year old six years studied medicine in Leipzig (DDR). He started painting at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in West Berlin. His paintings and graphics made known Kriester. He caused a stir with his sculptures.
Kriesters theme: the human figure. He reduced them to their most expressive parts of head, hand, foot, these forms often in supernatural size. Occasionally, he combines these parts or combines them with other elements. His expression will Kriester subjects virtually any mouldable material: aluminium, bronze, brass, cement, wood, stone, clay. On the question of the meaning of his work, his profession Kriester replied once "we To give the shape and the color the them their own meaning, as far as we can see it. In our subjects, we preserve the joy of discovery - the pleasure in the unexpected. Our topic itself must be a source of interest. But For what set out what we do, if anyone who wants to, can see it."
So temperamental, so sure, so freely judge and audience had see the Munich never jump Gerti Schanderl. Germany's young skating star ran the best free skate of his career - and the third-best of all runners at the World Championships in the Bavarian capital. By the 11th after duty and short program, Gerti Schanderl to fourth place in the overall ranking moved forward.
The ice skating Stadium in Munich experienced a World Cup of surprises and the superlatives. Technical perfection, harmony and diversity of new run elements, as they present Rodnina/Zaytsev, seem hardly more überbietbar. For the sixth time, Irina Rodnina won a world title - a record in the history of the pair run. At the pageant, the pair once again fascinated the audience with his interpretation of the "Kalinka".
New standards in the men's figure skating was a painter from Canada: Toller Cranston, according to my experts, is preceded the Kürlauf perhaps for a decade. The originality of the creations of his movement and his dancing grace covering the sporting difficulties of his freestyle. Toller Cranston was only third. His residue from the duty was too big. But his routine and his performance at the pageant were the highlights of the skating days.
