Bundestag President Baerbel Bas speaks under a portrait of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to commemorate Gorbachev’s death as members of the German government, including Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Economy and Climate Action Minister Robert Habeck and Finance Minister Christian Lindner, look on on September 07, 2022 in Berlin, Germany. Gorbachev, who died in Moscow on August 30, allowed countries in Eastern Europe in 1989 to go their own political paths, leading to the end of the Iron Curtain and the rebirth of democratic societies in the region. For Germans that meant an end to heavy-handed communist rule in East Germany and the eventual reunification of West and East Germany into Germany as we know it today.
