01 Schloß Reinbek of Northern Germany is rich in historic stately homes. It took seven years to a somewhat neglected building almost became the Castle, which built by Duke Adolf of Holstein Gottorp in the Jahre_1572. The faithful restoration to the example of Windows and arcades was only possible because the old plans had been found by chance.
Festive diplomatic reception by the Minister President of Schleswig-Holstein. Politicians today use the representative frame, its previous predecessors have created several hundred years ago. Conservation and preservation of historic buildings has become an important cultural and political mission. At the same time growing interest of many citizens in the history and its testimonies.
The nit of great love for detail restored Castle Reinbek applies to art as something special. It was the first Ducal Castle North of the Elbe, which was not built as a military fortress. The models were probably in France and the Netherlands.
Much is again as in the past, only Princes no longer exists in Reinbek. The castle is one of alien citizens.
02. Nobel Prize winner von Klitzing "this is the document that the Swedish King has presented to Professor Klaus von Klitzing in Stockholm on December 10, 1985, together with the Nobel Prize. "Mr. Professor of Klitzing, what has changed since then in the changed your life?"
"Mainly, the number of telephone calls. I am invited to a lot of meetings very much events which I can visit all did not, and I have tremendous difficulty with my calendar. This is one of the biggest problems at the moment. I would very much like to convey what we explore. Many students invite me to lectures. I would love to take that, unfortunately I can't do that at the moment."
"What Additionally can be because you in your early years as a Nobel Laureate now?"
"It's already hard to beat something, because the Nobel Prize is already an absolute highlight in the life of a researcher, a scientist."
This is the ultimate release in an American Journal, on the basis of which the Nobel Committee awarded the prize. Professor of Klitzing had found a natural constant one night at the Research Institute in Grenoble. 5 1/2 years later, he received the most important international science prize from the hand of the Swedish King. The staff at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart, which might not be in Stockholm, look at the solemn ceremony of the videotape. You are very proud of her boss, the global collaboration in research is particularly close to the heart. "It's a contest between the working groups, of course but it is a peaceful competition and I actually enjoy it when I'm at meetings, when discussed, if you want to refute, if you have different results. Is a great community, and that's the beauty, and I have so many friends all over the world, I find that the pleasant."
Politicians and citizens is even clearer made by the Nobel Prize, that the Federal Republic of Germany needs basic research, one of the leading industrial countries to be next. In five years, the findings could change communications engineering and computer engineering. Undreamt-of possibilities open up especially for our time, the micro-electronics, key technology.
03. a ride on the Wannsee railway that was once the Anhalter Bahnhof in Berlin. Where today ruins are available, pulsed before the war of the life of the German capital. Backbone of the passenger transport was the S-Bahn, Stadtbahn.
She's even today. However, in West Berlin, which is like an island in the middle of the komnunistischen GDR, she lost most their former function, namely to bring people from the countryside to the city. We take a train of the Wannsee railway, which opened more than 100 years ago. It passes through old Berlin districts of Schöneberg and Zehlendorf.
The S-Bahn in West Berlin from East Germany was operated until 1984. The State of the plant was always worse, fewer and fewer passengers traveled with. In this way, the Berlin protested against the wall in the middle of their city. Since the traditional S-Bahn in West Berlin is directed, it comes up again - stations and plants were placed on new luster. The number of passengers is rising again.
The last stretch of the journey starts a popular excursion destination of the Berlin - Nikolassee to Wannsee. In their best times, the S-Bahn had over 700 million passengers a year. Measured because it has modest. Wannsee station. The end of a drive through Berlin.
The yellow red train reminds day after day on the big time a city that suffers like no other war and Division to this day.
04. the other Germans in the West of Ilona and Andreas Radunz with her six year old daughter Bianca in the shopping spree in Wuppertal. A normal German family.
With your own car driving the 27-year old woman to work, while her husband, who later have to layer in a metal company, left with the daughter. The other, the communist ruled German State is full of memorabilia at the home of young Leite, the GDR.
Images from the Ore mountains. There, in Annaberg, the young family lived until the spring of 1984. It took five years to leave the Radunz' in the West were the authorities of the German Democratic Republic. Here, both have taken root private quickly and professionally. They have never regretted their decision to leave the GDR.
Professor Ronge and his colleagues from the University of Wuppertal track thirty ethnic families who no longer wanted to live in Germany under the political conditions in the Communist part with the resources of social science. Early 1984 East Germany just a few weeks left around 40,000 people in the West to leave. Also, the metal trades Michael Streit came in the course of this largest wave of exit since the construction of the Berlin wall. He quickly found a good job. Ms. Streit takes care of their small children.
For almost all of the former East German inhabitants, the start in the Federal Republic of Germany was similarly successful. According to the scientists, this has especially with her special diligence and the willingness to adapt to do. Two years after leaving the country, may not even enter the GDR on important family matters. Photos must keep alive the memory.
The settlers have from the outset all civil rights in the Federal Republic. The basic law has only a German citizenship, to which the Germans from the GDR can at any time appointed.
05. trading house Tesdorpf Lübeck, the old Hanseatic City on the Baltic Sea. One of the oldest retailers of in Germany, the company Tesdorpf here. Since 1678, wine is their business.
Carl Johann Tesdorpf leads the company in the eighth generation. Like his ancestors, he imported wines from France, particularly Burgundy and Bordeaux, stores, maintains and sells them.
The wine tasting at each new delivery is almost a ritual.
"Pious, righteous, moderation" - which is still valid today the founder's motto. As the wine trade gradually brought wealth, the family showed common sense: a Tesdorpf became mayor, an other guardian of the later writer, Heinrich and Thomas Mann, the perhaps most famous Lübeck. Images from the history of the company. Carefully as ever and ever the cellar master checks the wine.
The solid businessman type has not changed despite modern office technology.
In the camp the connoisseur sees other reasons for the success of the trading house: about the specialization on a few areas, care of the wines and reliable service. In addition, that the mild maritime climate of Lübeck's delicate red wine gets especially good. So, in Lübeck's Tesdorpf provides French wine to customers in France.
06. American pastor in Bonn a Sunday morning in Bonn. In the Thomas-Morus Church, Father William Travers celebrates the fair for the English-speaking Catholics of the German capital.
About 3,000 people belong to the municipality - diplomats, businessmen or journalists, whose Muttersprache is English. The services are well attended, the sermons of Father William is famous.
Money for a good cause. The kids hold a bazaar with grown coffee and cake. The proceeds will go to victims of the earthquake in Mexico. The crowd is great and organizer Father William can be satisfied.
A pastor in uniform. William Travers was a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. air force and is still today a military chaplain. Here he visited American soldiers who do service together with their German comrades on the airbase Nörvenich near Bonn.
The American military Bishop is the Chief of the military pastor, German Archbishop of Cologne the civilian Pastor William Travers. In his Bonn home you can see how versatile the life of this man was and is: as a Jet pilot and medic, as auxiliary sheriff and private pilot in his home in California. Father William, here is a Bonn institution with Dachshund Fursty.
07. Hall Motocross Berlin training for the 3rd International halls-Moto-cross in Berlin. Last preparations for die_125 - cubic centimeter motorbikes - and its 32 riders from 10 countries. Start of the first run sold out Hall. 3,000 spectators want to see acrobatic sport - despite the pandemonium and gasoline fumes. The falls look worse than they are - hurt no one will, the crash is now even at the Motocross. The course is 500 meters long and packed with sporting problems: camel hump, floor joists, double Hill and washboard harassment require much skill of the riders. Not enough there to be fast.
In the narrow Hall must start differently than in open terrain, in several groups. The spectators enjoy the sporting spectacle not only more convenient, but also directly as outside.
