Few chancellors have been as controversial as Helmut Kohl was. Celebrated in 1990 as chancellor of German unification, Kohl was later brought down by a scandal over donations to his party. What remains of his political legacy?
When Angela Merkel became Germany's first female chancellor in 2005, many saw this as proof that it is not always a disadvantage to be underestimated by inner-party rivals. DW looks back at the beginnings.
The former US president supported German unification when others would not. He did so because he believed German democracy had succeeded, Bush's point man for German unification, Robert Zoellick, told DW.
The memorial service for George H.W. Bush honored the life of the last World War II veteran president. The event marks a watershed moment for Germany and the United States, says DW's Michael Knigge.
The German chancellor says that her country continues to seek an "orderly" Brexit, but is preparing for harsher eventualities. The topic dominated Merkel's second-ever parliamentary Q&A session.
