Außenminister Maas zum Tag der Deutschen Einheit

Message by Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Federal President


Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier held a speech at the ceremony to mark the Day of German Unity on 3 October in Potsdam: „The struggle for freedom and democracy is never won – anywhere in the world. It continues, and it’s up to us to pick up the banner over and over again. My advice is: let us accept this challenge! We do this in full awareness of what happened in 1989, of the courage and determination of the civil rights activists and the Peaceful Revolution.“

Please find the Speech by the Federal President on the Webseite www.bundespräsident.de

The speech can be watched as a video, and read in German, English and sign language.
