01. a balloon flight check-in for a flight in the style of the ancestors. At Münster in Westphalia, balloon racers from three countries their airships made ready to go - to a race over the Münsterland. The ladies themselves were in the basket. Men were needed only on the ground for startup repair.
In the 200 years that have passed since the first flight of a balloon in France, the airship filled with hot air or hydrogen has hardly changed. And still it is a plaything of the winds. Only his height can be changed. Up through dropping sandbags, down through discharge of gas.
It can go quite already upstairs, up to 6,000 meters. And for the Earth, the driver needs an identity card if he is driven off across borders.
In the Switzerland and in Germany the most balloonists are at home today. Although the air space by the dense air traffic has become tight. But if the balloon pilots after a breezy trip, usually one at the competent flight security officials call: he booked them then for a few hours standing between heaven and Earth - levitate and to dream.
02. the new Government in Bonn has her first busy weeks behind the new Government. The voters expect above all improve the economic situation of German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and his coalition of Christian Democrats and Liberals. Helmut Kohl wants to achieve this goal through the renewal of the social market economy.
The social market economy, so Kohl before the German Bundestag, guarantees equality of opportunity, prosperity, and social progress like any other economy. His Government wanted less Government and more personal freedom.
As a primary focus of his economic policies, Kohl called reducing unemployment, new growth, the rehabilitation of public finances and securing pensions. No economic straw fire was the target, but a lasting upturn in the economy.
The consequences of the Division of Germany for the people remain a constant challenge for the Federal Government.
Helmut Kohl recalled that the border, which tears apart Germany, divides Europe, separating East and West. The right to self-determination should not stop beyond this limit. The Germans have a claim to recover their unity in peace and in a larger European homeland and preserve.
The membership of the Atlantic Alliance and the European Community remains the foreign policy foundation of the new Government. Helmut Kohl has become known clearly in his first months of Office to do so.
The strong commitment to the West in the program of the Federal Government is also associated with a range of understanding, compensation and permanent cooperation with the East. The new Cabinet started his business in a difficult economic and foreign policy situation in Bonn. It has made no promises. Now, the citizens expect that the Government gets the economic and social problems and can contribute to a reduction of tension in the world.
03. the 17th of June 1953 the wall in Berlin. Nowhere, the Division of Germany seems absurd, brutal as right here. These young Germans have not themselves experienced the Division of their country and this city. With the East German State, barricaded behind the wall, they link far less personal experiences than the older ones, and the workers uprising is only a date of German history before 30 years beyond the Brandenburg Gate for them.
On June 17, 1953, these scenes: the red flag is brought down by demonstrators workers and torn into pieces.
The movement in the East Berlin has started. An acute economic and supply crisis tried to offload the party and State leadership of the GDR on the workers. The rise of the labour standards and prices for food. Strikes were the result.
In the Stalin Allee of East Berlin formed the construction worker to a powerful protest train and demand the reduction of standards. As the Government remains hard, strike a political rebellion spreads. Calls for resignation of the Government and free elections. A years of pent-up discontent discharges.
Kiosks and copies of party and Government newspapers go up in flames. But then roll tanks. The Soviet occupying power fears for the existence of the regime set up by her. Fists and stones against tanks. Images that went around the world 30 years ago: impotent rage of people who could never decide about their State order itself.
Gunshots. The spontaneous breaks up after two days, which is without leadership, together. He called for deaths and injuries. It was the first uprising against the Soviet socialism after the second world war. It was followed by Poland, Hungary and the CSSR. The difference of systems has not changed to this day. The Federal Government has managed persistent negotiations and treaties in recent years, to make the border more permeable. Efforts continue to make more bearable the consequences of the Division of Germany for the people.
04. the Schnoor quarter of Bremen a commercial metropolis with a centuries-old, good reputation in the world. Bremen. The port town on the river Weser has preserved its medieval town centre: the façades of the houses of fishermen, boatmen and craftsmen shape the city streets.
The 'Schnoor' means the district. "Sairo" is the German word for cord. Because the low and schmalbrüstigen houses are lined up like on a string. The cafes and restaurants have been built not only for the many tourists who come here now. They belong to the historical inventory of the Schnoor. Would he kept by law of decay and demolition was, they had long since modern concrete structures course.
There are treasures in antique shops to admire. The visitors of the Schnoor can see today the makers of traditional craftsmanship on the finger.
The Bremer wanted no museum or entertainment district, but an organic, full of life and work area. Wind instruments and organs are built; You can even rent it.
The Schnoor is a remarkable example of the alive preserved urban architecture of a bygone era. A village in the city.
05. the German children's charity children in the city. In densely populated residential areas, between traffic and concrete, limited space for development remains for children. Sure: childlike imagination and improvisation take possession of barren backyards. But proper playgrounds are rare.
Game mobile can help where appropriate space of action for children is missing in the vicinity of the apartments. In Munich, the Deutsche Kinderhilfswerk demonstrated the possibilities of such mobile game boxes, which have a whole assortment of various tools, craft supplies and equipment on board.
Here, the kids not to play be turned off so the adults have their peace of mind. Here your creativity should be promoted, their enjoyment of the game. Playing is a skill that often only have to learn it. You need no expensive toys, also empty beer crates can make a hell of a time.
There are 100 such game mobile in Germany. Children's Fund wants to be a lobby for children, a child-friendly environment. Children are entitled to their childhood, a space in a society dominated by adults.
06. Gymnast Regina Weber Regina Weber, 20 years old, German Champion in the Rhytmischen sports gymnastics. This kind of sport, at the next Olympics was for many years for the first time in the program, a pure domain of Eastern European countries.
For the first time, thanks to Regina Weber, Western Europe can compete with world class. The coach Livia Medilanski requires precision. With it came the success, not only for Regina Weber. The whole German team's hopes of future titles.
The sports gymnasts must do hard work in training. Physical performance is required, but also a natural relaxation and grace as in almost a different sport.
At this major international tournament in Wiesbaden, Regina Weber was rewarded by the jury, where only women may, with several first and second courses. Artistic Regina, who is still at school, is interested in the Ballet. You realize it's their precise rhythmic sense and the aesthetics of their lectures.
