tags: BERLIN WALL
Only 38% of German citizens wish to find out more about the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and German division. And over half of the German population (54%) does not want any more information on East Germany’s history.
These are among the results of a nationwide, representative study conducted by Infratest Dimap on behalf of the Federal Foundation for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship. The survey was conducted ahead of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, on 9 November.
But younger citizens seem to be the exception to the rule, with the survey showing 58% of this demographic is interested in more information about GDR history. Among respondents 14-29 years of age, a majority said they would like to find out more about the history of the communist East German state and German division.
