01 President Herzog in Warsaw 0 today ' 34 moments of remembrance in the Warsaw Uprising against the German occupation - 50 years ago.
0'45 a harder course for the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Roman Herzog. But he had hesitated a moment to accept the invitation of Lech Wałęsa and to commit themselves to the German debt of the Polish tragedy.
1'09 63 days the Polish dream had lasted from freedom - 63 days unequal fight of the insurgent Poland against the Germans, which were contrary to humanitarian conventions and not spared even the civilian population.
1'31 Warsaw was destroyed, bombed, burned - 200,000 people died.
1'37 with the failure of the uprising were vanished all hopes of Poland to throw off the German occupying power and to escape the Stalinist dictatorship. 1'55 "We grant absolution the murderers of Warsaw", said President of the Polish Republic - "but we transferred these feelings to the German people."
2'13 honoring the victims by the German Federal President was the most Poland as a gesture of reconciliation understood by, which can initiate a new chapter in good neighbourly relations.
2'35 Duke: "what we need is reconciliation and understanding, confidence and good-neighbourly relations.
The people have begun to join together in a United Europe. No one needs to give, nobody on its culture and its history of its national identity. Without we must only enmity and hatred, and on a small part of our national selfishness. "But today I bow down before the fighters of the Warsaw Uprising as before all Polish victims of the war: I ask for forgiveness for what has been done to you by Germans."
3'34 "Important words" - wrote the Polish press, words of shame and humility.
02. European youth maintains war graves 3'48 young Europeans, light hearted and unprejudiced. Their ancestors were still adversaries in wars - they want to shape their future together. "Reconciliation over the graves", young people meet in the summer months in many parts of Europe. We accompany a group to the german-Dutch border to one of the countless war grave sites.
4'14 for 14 days are young people faced with the fate of millions of people, who lost their lives on the battlefields of the two world wars, who perished in concentration camps or on the run. 4'34 the most moving young Spaniards, British, Russians, Poland and German, that many of the dead, whose Gräber maintain it between 17 and 23 years old were died as they like themselves.
4'55 but dispersal had 34 young people from 10 countries of course also. in the afternoons they experienced Germany tourist and culturally.
5'11 in Germany alone have met this year young Europeans 16 war cemeteries. Many know each other, have worked already once. -Their sensations give encouragement for the future.
5'28 "it is important, in a world where there is so much war, to discuss with people of different nationalities about peace."
5'40 "we work together to overcome the atrocities that have happened in the past. We believe that such terrible times never come again, if people of from different countries talk to each other."
5 "55"I mean it is important just for Germans to take part in and contribute to international understanding."
6'04 "we will probably cry when we go away again, we are so friendly with each other. Probably not meet again at some point - but in the war, but in peace."
03. portrait of the German society for the rescue of shipwrecked 6'24 each summer it attracts hundreds of thousands of Germany's coasts. Recreation in and on the water! A contemporary trend, its risks and dangers of many be underestimated. The boats of the German society for the rescue of shipwrecked lie in Central Coast locations such as here in Wamemünde near Rostock. -If people in distress: the society with the unspeakable abbreviation DGzRS help - for 130 years!
"56" we come"- these words listen to 6 every year about 2,000 support who are in danger on the high seas. If the forces leave a surfer on a shrimp fire breaks out or when an ocean liner failed the technology.
This company is 7'23 financed by voluntary contributions and donations. 170 permanent staff and over 500 volunteers are ready for use when the DGzRS around the clock and in all weather conditions.
7'42 devastating maritime disasters in the 19th century resulted in 1865 the company. Pulled by horses to water, the men initially went with rowing boats used. Many rescuers killed in stormy seas.
8'04 in 1911 began the motorization of the rescue fleet. The seefesten boats are now closed and thus provide protection against the waves.
8'15 today is the maritime fleet with modem ster technology equipped. Agile daughter boats carried on the rescue cruisers, allows to get close to the disaster areas.
8'33 on the North and Baltic Sea is there since the reunification of Germany over 50 well equipped rescue stations. The operations are coordinated by the headquarters in Bremen.
8'55 a emergency - and again stands a cruiser at sea. probably never, the sea will lose its dangers for the people.
04. private breweries in Bavaria 9'12 a beer is in favor of the Germans still top. Approximately 1,200 domestic brewing facilities ensure that thirst with beer can be deleted. There are most of them in Bavaria. They are mainly small - and medium-sized enterprises, which provide its region with beer.
9'33 the recipe for success of many Bavarian private breweries: high tech in the Bräu, E.g. in the Andechs Abbey.
9'44 in the Middle Ages was brewing a privilege of the monasteries and the beer reserved only for monks and pilgrims. Today tapped the barrels for all.
9'57 in a monastery at Regensburg mixes the Franciscan Sister Doris hops and malt according to an old recipe and proves that the art of brewing is not only a male profession. There are more than 4,000 different types of beer in Bavaria.
10'16 long is the quality of German beer to Asia and South America talked around. No wonder, then, that many foreign students attend the schools of brewery in southern Germany.
10'33, and what is the success of the regional breweries?
10'40 "we maintain the home of beer, beer takes home, we have our Inn with Hotel here, where the Braustüberl with good beer sales and good snack business. We do so much for our brand and we do everything to keep our brewery at a high technical level, of course."
10'56 which has demand for German beer from abroad increased, sales on the local market, however, has stagnated. A development that worries particularly family businesses. A closer cooperation of the many small breweries could the competitive pressure mindem and its self-reliance compared to about 50 large Bavarian breweries sichem. Just as the wide range of high-quality beers are maintained in the future.
05. Harley-Davidson meeting ' 94 11'43 a Wochenendvergnügen, a cult dedicated to: 8,000 followers of Harley-Davidson machines wanted to once again celebrate their passion, their lifestyle - this time on the outskirts of Munich.
12'02 bubbling 2-cylinder engines, richly decorated, elegant chrome-plated: a status symbol.
12'11 almost simultaneously with the conquest of the skies by the Wright brothers was in Milwaukee that indestructible bike born, which is sought after all over the world. Each machine - it is said - is an heirloom for the generation of grandchildren; distinctive tags and individual accessories, admired even by those who can afford no Harley. Always still largely handmade, is their exclusivity in the price. 12'47 fascination knows no age.
"For me it was more or less an admiration for America. When I saw the statue of liberty, I wanted to go there. Now I've seen the statue of liberty and also Harley drive."
12'59 "a myth - says this Frenchman - no plastic on this bike, only it's antique, valuable metal parts, and that. Harley, you go for a walk, you not races."
13'15 and this has the advantage that it is considered long. Who is "All American Motorcycle" one, feels elitist, thinking nostalgic and is always fashionably styled.
13'28 women - that was visible even at this largest Harley-Davidson meeting in Europe - stay preferably on rear seats; only 8 percent have the handlebars in their own hands.
13'46 high point of the meetings ' 94: the exit on Sunday morning. 4,000 woke the Munich with their noisy show. 14'09 now it again was there: the sense of freedom, which swarmed even Elvis Presley and Brigitte Bardot. The descendants of the easy-rider generation between the victory column and English garden.
14'35 the meinschaftsgefühl is included in the purchase price of 15 to 50, 000 mark. The Harley links across borders and continents.
14'48 and the fans something else made quite high: the grandson of the founder of Davidson, which today determine the styling of the bike from the United States. Now - he is celebrated as a cult object.
