Ten Years of German Unification: One State, Two Peoples

By Charlotte Kahn | Go to book overview

hundred twenty dollars. Our colleges and universities are completely free. In Germany, anyone can go to college. We have kindergartens that are almost free and which to a large extent are subsidized. Street cleaning, the cleaning of the cities, the parks. Hospitals--well, they're getting more expensive all the time, but still, we have basic health care. I pay 300 DM a month whether I'm sick or not. But if necessary, I can go to the hospital, get a cardiac catheter put in, or be fitted for a leg prosthesis.

A healing body aches, and keeping the body healthy can cost the patient, the insurance company, or the state a great deal of money--it is the same with the integration of members of society into the collective German body of state. It takes time. The fracture will heal, but the scars may be noticeable for some time--on into the next generation, the generation after that, even into subsequent generations. It all depends on how one deals with the trauma.

According to Jürgs "67 enterprises in the GDR were under Schalck's jurisdiction; 108 others were well hidden in Western Europe . . . and Schalck was considered a reliable business partner. . . . These firms obtained everything their own state couldn't produce or goods whose export into the GDR was forbidden during the Cold War."
