Angela Merkel says Germans need to understand their own history better to lay the right foundations for the country’s future. The German chancellor said Saturday that understanding the history surrounding Germany’s reunification in 1990 and the dark period of National Socialism is essential.
She criticized far-right protesters who chant the East German dissident slogan, “We are the people,” but said it was also important to reach out to those who feel left behind. The phrase is frequently heard at anti-migrant protests nowadays.
