1st German French folk festival in West Berlin. Hours of entertainment and distraction in a city where politics more spoken as iroendwo in the Federal Republic, except in Bonn.
Nowhere else, the relationship between the population and the former Western victorious powers is so tight and warm. The present allies of the Federal Republic have a special role here: the United States, Britain and France guarantee the safety and freedom of West Berlin as protective powers. US Secretary of State Haig before the wall, with the Communist East Germany has sealed off their district. The location of the divided city is particularly dramatically felt on this seam between East and West.
Checkpoint "Charlie", the American border crossing into East Berlin. The soldiers who serve have a 12-hour day. Their task is the vehicle and person control of American soldiers. Without control may happen only Soviet officers, the patrol in West Berlin To want go: a right, East and West Each other have granted the Berlin four powers Statute.
The married US soldiers living mostly outside the barracks, which most in certain streets and settlements, so they also after conclusion of service can maintain contacts with each other.
There are four American barracks in the city. Around 6,000 soldiers have stationed in West Berlin the United States. The two other protective powers, Great Britain and France put together an equally strong contingent.
Barracks-all day like in the United States, except that the home is 7000 kilometres. The unmarried soldiers living in the barracks, and spend most time here also. The usual standard of living include supermarket and its own hospital. Alternately Protestant, Catholic and Jewish religious services To find Instead of in the garrison church. Once in a year, the protective powers hold a joint troops parade, which is taken from the three allied commanders.
Berlin is a Western island in the Communist sphere. Although the troops would be too weak to hold its own against a massive attack. But the military presence of the protective powers is a political signal of the West, to guarantee the freedom and safety of West Berlin.
02. the Germans - a people on boards. There must be enough snow there as in this winter as the Federal Republic for months under a blanket of snow. Then, many citizens use the weekend and even the evening alone or with the family taking a ski trip.
The crowds before the ski lifts is not for everyone, not to mention the cost. Winter sport is still an expensive pleasure that only a minority can afford. Lift fees, ski equipment, accommodation and travel costs: many save throughout the year and forgo a summer holiday.
Go approximately 6 million Germans and again ski. 2 million are engaqierte winter Porter, who spend their holidays in the Alps or in the many central uplands of Germany.
03. in the cities they fall in the eye: socially disadvantaged, the disabled and the disadvantaged, who have found their place often just on the edge of the meritocracy often little can align State aid and integration tests. -Now grows the number of young people in the Federal Republic, which tackle these marginalised groups; they choose the profession of social worker.
Five of them are working in the "Haus der Jugend" in the St. Georg district of Hamburg. A so-called problem area with a high proportion of foreigners. Children have special problems of foreign workers who have posted have no roots in their new home. They especially the staff of the youth House care.
Above all they should for children from Turkey, Spain and Yugoslavia since his and open to their needs and concerns. The friendly relationship that connects young people with the social workers, gives them courage to rebuild their own world up. The social workers To try to respond to their diverse interests. Those who come here, Do it voluntarily. That many come, speaks for the Proqramm of the social worker and her personal commitment; them To give suggestions, as leisure is useful to use and they advise the young foreigners at their school and vocational concerns; A few of the social workers are Turkish to learn so that they better able to respond to the problems of their protégés.
Behind them is a three-year education degree and one year of practical training. They must renounce regulated working hours often, such as when she disabled people support or working as a probation officer for discharged prisoners. Is not a job to get rich, but a task not without social responsibility to deal with; social workers also can not solve many problems, but they help young people E.g. in the theatrical play their claims and disappointments, such as the housing, to articulate.
The rising work tslosigkeit in the Federal Republic brings it about that more people in the future are needed, which take care of the most vulnerable groups.
04. invitation to a trip to the middle ages: Duderstadt. The 850-year-old town hall is the oldest in Germany. In the city archives is the birth certificate of Duderstadt built in 927. The Lower Saxony half-timbered House shapes the image of this small town in Northern Germany in many variations.
Stop! This border. The Federal Republic to end is at the gates of the city. The DDR is located beyond the border. By the Division of Germany, Duderstadt has half of its former hinterland of Shailendra oren. Since then it is struggling with the consequences of its border location: low economic growth, migration of the population. A small border traffic from West to East the connection to related and marriage may, neighbors in the other German State holds auffrecht.
To maintain jobs and to create new is necessary here as elsewhere. The State calls the Industrieansiedl ung with cheap credit. Economic poster boy is an orthopedics company that sold its electronic prostheses around the world today.
The Duderstädter are a sober critical breed of cat. Her motto in life is written in the chorus of the old city anthem: "We faithfully and firmly hold together!"
05. a schmalziger Tango from the 1920s: ironic reflection of a monumental picture that times presents 3 m 50 joke, satire and deeper meaning on an area of 5. One year the Berlin painter Matthias Koeppel had been working on his image on the "seven deadly sins". The demolition of a historic movie theatre had given the impetus that had to make way for the construction of the Berlin "Schaubuehne".
In protest, Kaka then called friends before the construction site, arranged scenes of a modern company and photographed them. He showed these shots, to numerous subsequent work studies, now together with the finished painting, on which the biblical vices modern appearance are gathered.
The seven deadly sins - yard drive, lust, inertia of the heart, gluttony, avarice and wrath goods envy, a popular theme in medieval painting.
Kaka himself posing as a personification of avarice, which shows how all other Biblical sins in modern society in poor disguise.
A financial broker confirmed the artist: he bought the picture, but only after he had heruntergehandeld to 15,000 mark Kaka.

In the professional world the name is considered diesesFamilienunternehmens in the German capital Bonn seal of approval. High-quality organs are built for 100 years.
The material for the pipes remained unchanged: a tin-lead alloy, whose mixing ratio depends on the shape and size of the pipes. Also, the operations have been preserved. All parts of an organ in his own workshop are made according to old tradition.
The "Queen of instruments" is crafted. Only the body of the pipe rolled machine.
Organ builder of KLAIS employing 70 trained professionals. Most are staying their entire professional lives. It was always thus. Specialist technical knowledge and craftsmanship, in generations acquired and refined: therein lies the economic success of this company. It is the same recipe that has helped many other small businesses in the Federal Republic to survive the economic crisis.
Each organ is made to measure for a particular room. If they sound and work soil, must technology, MRP, intonation and architecture form a unit.
Fine-tuning the intonation room before the organ in components and parts will be transported to their final destination.
Japan and the United States are among the largest foreign customer of Bonn company. This organ built KLAIS some years ago for the new St. Anthony's Church in Wuppertal, Germany.
