Monday, 5 February 2018


The Local (Germany’s English language daily) alerts us to the fact that this moment, Monday 5 February 2018, marks the last time in history that the period of time Inner German border (deutsch-deutsche Grenze) stood was greater than the amount of time that Germany has been reunited. The BDR and the DDR were separate political entities for a longer period of time but there was no physical barrier until 13 August 1961.
