Germany is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. But many in eastern Germany feel like second-class citizens left behind. Has it been a success story for everyone?
Linda Vierecke grew up in the former GDR and was seven years old when the wall came down. Today she works as a reporter for DW and just finished a documentary about the fall of the wall. She thinks: "It's only now, three decades after the Wall came down, that we realize how radical the change was for people in the East."
Catherine Nicholson works for France24. She believes: “Permanent euphoria is unrealistic: learning lessons from the past is more important”
Anthony Paterson is a british freelance journalist, who witnessed the fall oft he wall first hand in 1989. He says: „Thirty years on from the fall of the Berlin Wall , the far right is winning a worrying amount amount of support in the once communist east.“
