24.03.2015 DW-TV Feature DOKU Helmut Kohl 2003

Helmut Kohl with Stephan Lamby and Michael Rutz in 2003

Never before – or since - had Helmut Kohl talked so openly and in such detail before the camera as he did with authors Stephan Lamby and Michael Rutz. The interview took place at Kohl’s home in Ludwigshafen-Oggersheim in the spring and fall of 2003. Now, to mark his birthday, Deutsche Welle presents excerpts from this remarkable conversation.

Kohl also talks about the hard times

Helmut Kohl discusses German reunification, his friendship with French president François Mitterand, and Europe and the introduction of the Euro. But he also talks about the difficult times in his life such as the party donation scandal and the suicide of his wife, Hannelore. Helmut Kohl in real-time: genuine, open and unmediated.
