  GDR Souvenirs - Official Gifts from Abroad
From the outset, the GDR was on the defensive.
To the GDR's Party and state leadership, this visit was the crown and confirmation of their persistent efforts to have the existence of two separate, sovereign German states recognised once and for all.
Given the speed and the thoroughness with which the GDR was removed from the map, and the immensity of the changes in the political landscape between 1989 and 1991, it would be easy to overlook the fact that not only did new states come into being in Europe but one old one also disappeared.

 East Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The German Democratic Republic (GDR) (German: Deutsche Demokratische Republik), also commonly known as East Germany, was a communist state that existed from 1949 to 1990 in the former Soviet occupation zone of Germany.
In the first and last free elections of the GDR on March 18, 1990, the leading communist party SED lost the majority, which was guaranteed in the previous elections, in the Volkskammer (the parliament of the GDR).
Although the inter-German border was largely closed by the mid-1950s (see GDR border system), the sector borders in Berlin were relatively easy to cross.

 GDR feature
The judicial persecution of citizens of the former GDR by west German court officials is the resuit of a mandate from the FRG government.
It violates the 2+4 contract of 1990 between the governments of the GDR and the FRG on the one hand and with the four main victorious powers of the Second World War on the other, through which the unification of the two states was made possible.
In view of this, the judicial persecution of anti-fascists and of citizens educated in the spirit of anti-fascism in the former GDR, is a mockery of all victims of fascism.

 The Plundering of the GDR by the Soviet Union
The focal point of economic development of the GDR lies unequivocally in heavy industry, which as in all capitalist countries is developed at the expense of agriculture and the consumer goods industry.
The GDR is likewise dependent on the Soviet Union for the supply of hard coal, iron ore, nickel-iron metals such as copper and nickel, wool and cotton, etc.
Although the GDR is the largest producer of brown coal in the world, and can provide its whole power supply with its own forces, the Soviet Union also built nuclear power plants in the GDR, which today produce 11% of its power.

The GDR Council of Ministers has adopted an important decision: Henceforth, until the GDR Volkskammer adopts a law establishing procedures for GDR citizens to travel abroad, anyone who so wishes will be given the opportunity to go to the FRG or West Berlin without any special formalities.
Yesterday evening, as soon as the GDR government's decision was made public, many residents of the capital took advantage of the possibility that had opened up: They set off for West Berlin in their own cars or on municipal electric trains.
The decision of the GDR Council of Ministers was dictated by humanness, by a striving for normal good-neighbor relations.

The severe shortage of Western currency in the GDR, one of the key concerns of the SED leadership, was alleviated by agreements with the FRG that tripled the bulk contributions to the East German postal administration by the FRG.
For the first time, GDR rulers realized that they were losing control: the demonstrations were too massive to be quelled by intimidation or even mass arrests; and shooting at the demonstrators was out of the question because of the sheer size of the crowds and the absence of Soviet support for draconian measures.
Eventually, the GDR leadership was forced to allow special trains to carry thousands of GDR refugees who had received permission to emigrate to the West after taking sanctuary in the FRG's embassies in Prague and Warsaw.

To aid the GDR's transition to a market economy, the FRG is establishing a Unity Fund of 115 billion Marks ($70 billion).
The environment in the GDR is heavily degraded, due in large part to the country's reliance on brown coal as an energy source.
To illustrate the extent of the problem: only 2.4 percent of the water supply is fit for drinking; less than 60 percent of households are linked to purification facilities; only 40 percent of the 100 million tons of waste per year is being recycled.

 Promoting Socialism and Anti-Colonialism:The Development Policy of the GDR
A GDR Council of Ministers decision in 1988 emphasized that development aid "is to be so provided that its effective employment is in harmony with the macroeconomic interests of the GDR, its foreign policy goals and the solidary support of the developing countries".
Other specific forms of GDR assistance, besides disaster aid and humanitarian support, encompassed the free medical treatment of victims of wars of liberation and civil conflicts (a total of about 10,000 treatments), and the acceptance of children for in school and subsequent vocational training.
The GDR's development policy must be assessed in its historical context and measured by the yardsticks of its concept and aspiration.

 Socialist Magical Realism - Irmtraud Morgner's Trobadora Beatrice
Morgner herself received approbation from the regime: she was awarded the GDR-National Prize for Literature, the highest state honor, and in 1977 she was selected to the board of the Writers' Union, an appointment that also implies the government's dubious approval.
It takes her nearly two years to reach the promised land, and by January 1, 1971 she is off again, embarking on a quest in search of the mythical unicorn, the one species still absent from the land of miracles -- and one whose discovery could reshape the convictions of the entire nation.
The GDR may have been a flawed and ultimately a failed political experiment, but small and lasting miracles were possible even there.
