Mr. Bundesrepublik (2006)

On the 30th of September 1989, from the balcony of the German Embassy in the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague, Hans-Dietrich Genscher announced that all the refugees from East Germany who had gathered here - several thousand of them - would be allowed to travel on to West Germany. The rest of his words were drowned in cheers. With this, the most moving moment of his life and the highlight of his career, MR BUNDESREPUBLIK initiated the incredible chain of events which ended with the reunification of Germany. This film demonstrates that Genscher’ name is associated not only with the great political career. When he left the German cabinet in 1992 he had been a minister for 23 years: four years as Minister of the Interior and 18 years as Foreign Minister. In international politics his name represents the epoch when the Cold War came to an end and Europe came to have no more fear of a united Germany.
