Why visit Germany
Germany is a country member of the European Union situated in west central Europe. A good part of its territory is characterized by the influence of Atlantic winds coming from the west. Winters are mitigated by these wet winds and summers are usually cool, windy, often with the presence of thunderstorms and very dry in the centre.
Germany is famous in history for its role in both World Wars. It was defeated in the first by a powerful alliance. In June 1919 Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles; a treaty that was perceived by the Germans as a humiliating continuation of war. Germany deeply suffered from the effects of the first after-war and of the strong conditions dictated by the Treaty of Versailles, there were lots of insurrections which led to continual political murders. It was the moment, in 1933, in which the president of the Reich appointed Adolf Hitler as the chancellor. Hitler immediately started his campaign based on nationalist ideas of Germany's greatness. The World War II, a blitzkrieg, saw Germany as the growing protagonist. The history of this war is sadly known for the Nazi genocide that led to the death of millions of people, especially Jews, in German concentration camps. Since they lost also the World War II, the areas of Germany were shared among different countries. The most important division was that of Berlin, current capital, that was divided into East Berlin and West Berlin by a wall. The western part, governed by Usa, France and United Kingdom enjoyed a prolonged economic growth which started in the 50s, but we cannot say the same of the Eastern part, governed by the URSS. The wall fell in 1989 and it was one of the most important historical events ever.
