25 years of German unity – in 2015, Germany celebrates the 25th anniversary of reunification.
The special feature on “25 years of German unity” in the issue 02/2015 of DE Magazin Deutschland and the corresponding dossier on the deutschland.de website do not only present background articles and interviews looking back on what has been achieved, but also and above all they focus on the present in Germany today.
