Laschet Merkel biography – culture


Gustav Seibt

What will Angela Merkel’s Chancellorship stand for? Konrad Adenauer is associated with ties to the West and the economic miracle, Willy Brandt with Ostpolitik, Helmut Schmidt with the victory over the RAF and the NATO double decision, Helmut Kohl stands for reunification and Gerhard Schröder for Agenda 2010. Merkel was Chancellor too long to to be regarded as a transitional figure like Ludwig Erhard or Hans-Georg Kiesinger.
