  6. Berlin the old/new capital

  9. We end inevitably with questions, for history never ends and the present is but the starting point for the future. Where now for the reunified Germany and Berlin in the light of Brexit and increased American isolationism? Does the European fear of the re-emergence of an overmighty Germany misjudge the new Germany? Does a belief in the democratic new Germany, as one of us, blind us to political forces stirring within?
