The Reunification

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, which occurred due to opposition movements that were able to rally together within the Churches, the GDR and the FRG were reunited (1990). New Länder were created and they adopted constitutions that were in accordance with the Basic Law and with its religious articles. The Protestant Churches of East Germany were reintegrated in the EKD and the Catholic dioceses into the German Episcopal Conference.
