The Peaceful Revolution (German: Friedliche Revolution) was the process of sociopolitical change that led to the opening of East Germany's borders with the west, the end of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED) in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) and the transition to a parliamentary democracy, which enabled the reunification of Germany in October   Parts of her dissertation, ‘On Unregulated Markets and the Freedom of Media: The Transition of the East German Press after ’, have been translated into German, and have been published in a German-language book, Pressefrühling und Profit, in German reunification (German: Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) was the process in in which the German Democratic Republic (GDR, colloquially East Germany; German: Deutsche Demokratische Republik/DDR) became part of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG, colloquially West Germany; German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland/BRD) to form the reunited nation of Germany, as provided by.

Protests force out East German rulers East Germany's Communist-dominated government has resigned - the first time such an event has occurred in the country's year history.

The posters refer to the East Germans’ Peaceful Revolution ofwhen first in Leipzig, and then across the German Democratic Republic, the East Germans cried, “Wir sind das Volk.

Not surprisingly East German officials largely ignored any West German mentioning of the Austrian-Hungarian example as an example for German-German relations.

When the Austrian-Hungarian treaty on the abolition of visa requirements went into effect inEast Berlin kept a close eye on how travel between Austria and Hungary developed. The recent visit of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is also being seen as a contributing factor to the downfall of Mr Honecker.

The Soviet leader was highly critical of the East German leadership saying there was a need for people to feel involved with their country and to have their opinions taken seriously.
