Phase three During the process of German unification many international observers speculated that the Germans could fall into a national and perhaps anti-communist frenzy and that their admirable culture of self-critical remembrance might soon come to an end. Nothing of the kind has materialized thus far. The Buchenwald Memorial is now receiving three times as many visitors as it did when East Germany still existed as a country, and this without communist-party-prescribed visits by school classes and brigades of factory workers.

Seen from this standpoint we could define two categories of victims who suffered most as approximate solutions. On the one hand, there were those, such as the Jews and the Sinti and Roma, whom the Nazi regime denied the right to live and who were to be exterminated as a race in the course of a campaign of genocide. Or there were those who, on the basis of a police order or for other reasons, were to be “eliminated” from society; however, they were not to be killed immediately but rather isolated and mistreated in concentration camps or similar camps where the risk of dying was quite considerable.

The amount of these monthly pensions is much higher than the average pensions paid by many CIS countries.

The so-called Two-PlusFour Agreement (Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany) was concluded between West Germany, East Germany, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States on the termination of Four Power rights and responsibilities relating to Berlin and to Germany as a whole, thus opening up the Lutz Niethammer way for reunification.
