Remembering German Unification

Tuesday was a day full of celebration for the German MT class: not only were there two big days in the German-speaking world to celebrate, but we also hosted the Italian MT G9 class. The celebration started with an excellent presentation about Austria and Austrian National Day, celebrated each year on the 26 October. Victoria gave us a lot of interesting information on these topics, but in addition, also presented the most important composer from the country. There was a little hitch matching the name and the picture of the composer, but everyone tried their best. This was followed by a presentation about German Unification and the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Lia and Freddy explained why the country was separated after the Second World War and the differences between life in West and East Germany. They also focused on the process of building the Wall and bringing it down on 9 November 1989. After the presentation, Oskar conducted a quiz with the audience on some questions regarding German Unification. All students demonstrated their excellent knowledge. In the end, we all enjoyed some traditional Christmas desserts from Germany, Lebkuchen (gingerbread) and Stollen (fruit bread) and also some famous Mozart chocolate from Austria.
