75th Birthday of Sabine Bergmann-Pohl (* April 20, 1946)

The physician Sabine Bergmann-Pohl is the final head of state of the declining GDR.

After passing her specialist examinations and earning her doctorate, she is initially put in charge of an outpatient clinic for lung diseases and tuberculosis in Berlin-Friedrichshain when she is only 34 years old.

To avoid membership in the SED she joins the CDU, one of the GDR's bloc parties. In 1985, she is promoted to director of the East Berlin District Office for Lung Diseases and Tuberculosis. Around the same time she becomes more politically involved. Two years later, she takes over the chairmanship of the "Active for Health and Social Welfare" of the Berlin district association, which also provides her with a seat on the district executive committee. During the peaceful revolution she sits on the Central Round Table as deputy for the health sector.

Not keen on giving up her profession the political newcomer is rather reluctant to run for office in the first free elections to the People's Chamber on March 18, 1990. After the surprising and overwhelming victory of the conservative Alliance for Germany, she is elected President of the People's Chamber on April 5. As the GDR's Council of State is abolished on the same day, that means she also assumes the role of head of state. In the following six months over 150 laws are passed under her leadership. In the early hours of August 23 Bergmann-Pohl announces the People's Chamber's decision on the GDR's accession to the Federal Republic. On October 2nd she commences the final session of the People's Chamber. In Kohl's cabinet Bergmann-Pohl is assigned the post of Federal Minister for Special Tasks for one year, after which she serves as Parliamentary State Secretary in the Ministry of Health. In 2002 she voluntarily resigns from the Bundestag and becomes president of the Berlin Red Cross for the next ten years. In 2012 she is appointed City Elder of Berlin and continues to hold various honorary offices to this day.
