German Unity Day – October 3, 2016

| October 3, 2016 | 0 Comments
The GAHF is celebrating the Day of German Unity! Today marks the 26th anniversary of the official unification of East and West Germany. Although the fall of the Berlin Wall in November of 1989 symbolically united East and West Germany, Germany’s unification did not become official until the leaders of both countries signed the Treaty of Unification in August of 1990, establishing October 3rd as the official day of unification. Tag der Deutschen Einheit, or the Day of German Unity, is a national holiday in Germany with ceremonial festivities scheduled in a different city each year. This year the official celebration takes place in Dresden. We wish you a happy Day of German Unity. For news and upcoming events, please visit: www.gahmusa.org
