Introduction:

This web site, conceived and created as part of the 1998 NEH Summer Institute on Post-Wall Germany, contains a variety of materials, resources, and strategies for use in the creation of a classroom unit on post-unification Germany. Our goal was to focus not only on the historical aspects of German unification, but on the personal and societal stresses which unification has brought about within Germany.

Our vision was to create a kind of cyber "Unterrichtspaket" which would contain not only ready-to-use materials and activities, but also references to a wide variety of resources for historical and cultural information.
