01 Chancellor in Dresden and the opening of the Brandenburg Gate of the airport of Dresden. German Chancellor Helmut Kohl arrived here for the first German summit after the revolutlonären events in the GDR. The Prime Minister of the GDR, Hans Modrow, welcomed the Chancellor, but also thousands of Dresden citizens came to give him a tumultuous welcome. People in East Germany are hoping to support the economic recovery and the democratisation of their country from the Federal Republic.
Dresden, due to its historic buildings once "Florence on the Elbe" called, was almost completely destroyed in the second world war and calls therefore for the special responsibility of the Germans for the peace. The sympathy that suggested to Helmut Kohl, is expression of the feeling of belonging together developed the Germans. The rapprochement between the two countries was also the focus of discussions of Kohl and Modrow. Equally important for the Chancellor: a discussion with representatives of political opposition groups, of which the peaceful revolution in the GDR received important impulses, and who are now preparing for the first free elections in the GDR.
Both German States To want a contract community strive for. To Kohi and Modrow before the world press: Cabbage: "it is here - in the middle of Europe, in the middle of Germany - the interests of many stakeholders, one can say, to the interests of all neighbors. We, the Federal Government and I myself, are ready to support the reform processes, where we can make our contribution to the peace in Europe and the world together in the GDR."
Modrow: "But what is at stake today, and here we agree then again, is the fact that we have to meet the European peace, and that a contract community sets a starting point, which will see all neighbors confidence. And, I mean, that's exactly what we need at the time."
Especially reason and sound judgment, so the Chancellor, are now needed. Before the ruins of the Church of our Lady, which is a memorial to peace, Helmut Kohl stressed Germany's willingness to help. The people in the GDR Entschelden but would need about their own future.
Kohl: "Dear friends, self-determination for us also in the Federal Republic also means that we respect your Melnung. We To want and we will patronize anyone, we respect what you decide for the country's future. It is a difficult road, but it's a good way, it is about our common future. Our House needs to be built under a European roof, that must be the goal."
The decision in Dresden, to open the Berlin wall at the Brandenburg Gate, now, was realized on December 22, 1989. Tens of thousands of Berliners from both parts of the city wanted to experience this moment."At some point every wall falls"an unknown optimist had calculated on that wall piece written, now broken up amid general applause.
The Brandenburg Gate is like no other building with the history of the Germans. Here, the world looked as the GDR leadership the wall erected on 13 August 1961, the German for 28 years separated by Germans.
Almost three decades the symbol for the boom German tands and Europe, is the Brandenburg Gate on this day to the door of hope for a new era of coexistence of the people of East and West.
Hans Modrow, Helmut Kohl, were the first who steps through the gate almost two hundred years old. Then, there was no holding for the amount.
Here, where once was the Boulevard of old Berlin, life can pulsate well again in both directions. In their Begelsterung, the people stormed the wall and celebrated a celebration at the Brandenburg Gate. The opening of the Brandenburg Gate - which means the opening of the heart of the divided city for the Berlin. A day that hope can be.

Nehmeth Prime Minister and his Government do not get around to unpopular measures if the heavily indebted country out of the crisis to occur. The Federal Republic of Germany has a special reason to assist Hungary in this difficult situation. Because the courageous decision of the Hungarian Government, in September 1989, to open up their borders to Austria had paves the way to freedom for tens of thousands of Germans from the GDR.
Helmut Kohl pledged to Prime Minister Nehmeth in the European Union and the International Monetary Fund for Hungary to pursue.
The Chancellor laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Never before, since the end of the second world war, the conditions for peaceful co-existence in Europe were cheaper than now. It also Hungary has its share.
At his meeting with the incumbent President, Matyas Szürös Helmut Kohl thanked for that Hungary stood to fundamental rights of the German minority in the country.

Their country has opened the way in the Freihelt for tens of thousands of our compatriots. I must pay my Special respects you for it. We To want, that all Europeans, and including all the Germans, in common Freihelt come together."
In Hungary, the Federal Republic of Germany, has found a reliable partner in Eastern Europe. A visit, which was also a personal success for the Chancellor.
Kohl: "friendly people, a friendly head of Government, friendly people on the street, a warm welcome where you go, I can not expect more. We agreed that Hungary has given decisive impetus for the breathtaking development in East Germany and Czechoslovakia. If the image of the House of Europe makes sense, so it must be taken exactly. I am a passionate supporter of this House. It is a House with many open doors and open Windows, where everyone off and can go where no Concierge sits down and writes on, who's coming and going, but where we really move freely."

Erwin Eisch, whose Werke in the major museums of the world are To find, has renewed the glass art in Europe with his work. Glass No more is bound to the function, but the artist serves as a freles medium and plastic material - not unlike stone or metal.
"Very A lot thinking lies in the hands of" says Erwin Eisch. "The art left the body in the past 70 years. We must return to our real body, to our soul, our feelings to discover ourselves. We all need our thinking, sentient and arbeitendenHände as well as a philosophy based on the weakness and the size of the people."
