20 Years of German Unification

The East German regime (GDR) started to falter in May 1989, when removal of Hungary's border fence opened a hole in the Iron Curtain. It caused an exodus of thousands of East Germans fleeing to West Germany and Austria via Hungary. The Peaceful Revolution, a series of protests by East Germans, led to the East Germany's first free elections on March 18, 1990, and to the negotiations between the GDR and West Germany (FRG) that culminated in a Unification Treaty, while negotiations between the GDR and FRG and the four occupying powers (USA, Britain, France, Soviet Union) produced the so-called "Two Plus Four Treaty" (Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany) granting full sovereignty to a unified German state, whose two halves had previously still been bound by a number of limitations stemming from their post-WWII status as occupied regions. The united Germany remained a member of the European Community (later the European Union) and of NATO. (source: Wikipedia)
