Germany, France, and Europe 25 Years after the Wall
At the French embassy in Berlin, Hubert Védrine discussed developments in the Franco-German relationship since the Fall of the Wall. The oft-voiced criticism that Germany has become too politically and economically powerful is neither logical nor appropriate, he said. But the metaphor of the “Franco-German couple” is no longer current, for the partnership has expanded to encompass a great many other European participants.

The Power of History
Alfred Grosser and Etienne François dispute the cultures of remembrance in Germany and France
07/06/2012 | 18:30 - 20:00 | DGAP | Germany, History
The Power of History
“People remember differently in Germany and France,” said French political scientist and publicist Alfred Grosser. But “the differences in the cultures of remembrance become blurred,” answered his countryman Etienne François, a former professor of political science at the Free University in Berlin. Beside this national distinctiveness lies a common Franco-German memory that has long existed. Has this helped German foreign policy on its path toward “normalization”?
