11:34 am
a symbol of the power, an ideological struggle between east and west. shattered reg, your congress, germany is a graphic symbol of the desperate need and reconstruction off to the end of the 2nd world war berlin became the epicenter of the new world order. ah, divided between the wars victors, the u. s. u k. fronts and the former soviet union controlled different parts of the cities. the duplicate tensions between the eastern and western blocks eventually led to the cold war. the former zones controlled by east and west emerged as new nations. ah, the capitalist federal republic of germany, and the communist german democratic republic. at the peak of it, berlin was one of the most strategically critical places, the world, the in the early hours of august,
11:35 am
the 13th 1961. the 1st barrier of the berlin wall rose along the eastern border. the concrete block put up in the days, followed, marked an immediate new reality. cutting off families and friends and the world of freedom. the probably is on daily. yeah. clear statement of us policy in the week of the construction of the wall. the soviet leader nikita khrushchev maintained that as long as the concrete rules still stood, western leaders could not declare victory. but as the soviet union power and influence began to decline in the late 1980, it spelled the beginning of the end for the eastern block. ah,
11:36 am
the east german government couldn't keep functioning without the support of the soviets. change was coming in the early days of november, 1989 east germans turned out in huge numbers demanding reforms. on the evening of november 9, 1989 history was made is unknown to november, the orders that he did it went up to them and nathan told them i want to invite off and the rest, as they say is history. i'm stephanie decker and welcome to berlin. when the borders opened. it presented the city with a whole new world of opportunities and also to the people who lived here. and now it was 32 years on the german capital. continue the process of transformation. it's city that's been described by many as b in a forever state. come in and never be,
11:37 am
ah, and perhaps that's what makes it the pulsating city. it is today. forever marked by the clashing dogmas of east and west, ah, represent in every neighborhood in its public space in the way the city has been expanding, gentrifying and within its world renown street arch. ah, the wall may have come down, but the decades of polarizing ideologies and policies that it represented had been harder to break down. what is berlin today? and has a barrier of this whole created? been broken? is there still an e versus west on this edition of talk to algebra in the field will be exploring berlin identity will be joined by berliners to discuss the cities and his status quo legacy. and how that's reflected in many consider to be europe unapologetically, rebel,
11:38 am
capital i how much down my nose, berlin? well, he studied here and parties here drink what many would say was it's katie, in the 1990 s. and now in urban tanner, he has seen the city change over the years. so this is your vision for 2017, for that right, exactly. berlin and book so that both the city itself, but also for the entire region, focusing on sustainable development. he's looking ahead and how to manage a city. it's constantly evolving. what fascinating effect after the fall off the wall. the city was like an open playground. there was so many empty buildings that haven't been used before. and that attractive and flow of creative people and that occupies the faces. at the same time, there was of course, also
11:39 am
a boom expect investment for there was a lot of buying of property. and trying to figure out to actually own something at the time. because even that was unclear on that period, but that economic boom that everybody expected bell in the portal to eastern europe and so on. that just didn't happen because it attracted artist optimistic people. you know, you come in to use the best clots and all that. and it became of the, the night life center here, just because the boom didn't happen. so it was a different boom that happened. i think that made the 50, very interesting, even though that was not planned. it just happened to me because it's organic. we are plan of year, we are plan of yet at the same time. that's exactly what you want to know and they try to play with freedom. the freedom over the decades is attracted artists, musicians, party people,
11:40 am
creative thinker. berlin became known as a hub for street art and expression the, the interesting thing. it was like a big place in the 90s you had on next pipes building. you had a huge industrial sites that you could work on without problems. so i think there is a lot of fruit that get attracted by this freedom in the ninety's, also graffiti writers and then 2000 the freedom of the street artist is also they travel a lot and they leave their traces behind in every city. so like space invaders from friends, he left pieces here starting in 2003 or banks. he was here to he left pieces also here a little wraps. so many artist came here for that. the street artist passing by. so it's street our tourism, or graffiti tourism because the graffiti right is new. it's easy here, more easy to find space, maybe less police present. less control is berlin,
11:41 am
still attracting artists to come here in the same way that it is before. i think now the artist that they get aware that the rents are higher. so maybe there's some less coming. but it's still attractive because it still has turner to have places, maybe an inspiring vibe or something like that. and amazing spaces, ah, ah, increasing rents, and then i could, housing is an issue, no facing berlin. we put that to thomas. after the fall of the rule, the reputation berlin was that you could come, anyone could come here a new very cheaply do whatever they wanted. but that seems to be changing now. 30 years later that changed to changing 1st of all, a tough book a longer. so the boom that initially didn't happen, happened later,
11:42 am
and delayed for some european larger companies put their headquarters in berlin. moved here from frankfurt, or even from london. they recently, of course, over the breakfast play the throne bucket. maybe even more interestingly, is that to be freedom and creativity of, of so interesting that, that became and attracted by its own company. if people thought out that environment, even if maybe they themselves weren't artists, they wanted to be close to them. you know, thought that were the 1st pioneers and then a bit more mainstream followed. and let's not forget that off all these great people, they just got older for their part, it a bit less merry than married. suddenly they have children. maybe they even start at the company and now on the record label, what not, but it has become a real business. and we see that happening now. is there a backlash to that? because berlin seems to be a city that if we're generalize or against rules, they don't want more expensive rents. gentrification seems to get
11:43 am
a lot of push back here at thoughtful, fascinating because it seems there are 2 parallel processes going on. on the one hand, there's the people here, the, his own staff always being in the neighbourhood and often not what's happening. they might even ask, what are these creative people doing here? and why is my rent suddenly much more expensive? i don't want any of that. and then on could say that recently it's observable that there's almost a parallel world emerging power system of international capital coming in the apartment paid by the company, whatever it doesn't matter, let's just go for it. and so there's a huge gap between these 2 systems, and that indeed leads to a backlash and to conflict at the moment. and to see that we see that, especially in courts, that if they have the fans to help opening the window, get smashed regularly. not because of a particular hate against that store,
11:44 am
but just to, you know, to try to them from the curve if you want your not to keep the speculation and the tech to repeat down. but that, of course, can't be the solution either. berlin has a very unique history with a wall east, west germany, and in general, how do you see that in berlin? how do you still see that today? you can see it if you know what to look for, for i think it depends very much. if you are from here, and maybe even though intuitively, you can also see it even and light of the bulk of the 3 lamp on the pattern of the sidewalk, whether you and the youth on the west. also importantly, there is a kind of heritage which is more to society and not for much in the built environment so that they are still thing for clichy, if which are typically eve, typically west. but maybe if you're new, come to the city, you don't notice them and that's possibly a good thing. you know that the difference was disappear.
11:45 am
ah, it's been over 30 years since the fall of the war i wanted to understand. does east and west remain an issue to day? patrice buddha, bella is berliner specifically west berlin and t. v. presenter. how would you describe yourself these days? berliner does east and west of matter to you? to me it actually does, but just like barely because like some people don't even know. sometimes it's kind of i feel offended in ways when sometimes i like travelling around with people and they asked me, so is this the east? and i'm wondering why would they think it's the east although that we are in the west. so. busy because they're not really so familiar because so many things have been, have been billed or renovated within the last a few decades. so of course i understand it's really hard to tell you have some street signs which still indicates in which pods you are. it's very diverse, but also very chaotic and berlin. of course, it's not what it used to be like in the eighty's, which is not a bad thing,
11:46 am
but we have to figure out if it's a good thing. ok with you remember when the war was exciting, the thing was actually open. i actually live back in the back. in the days in 89, i used to live in inventing, which was quite the area where both on the wall came out was really right across your neighborhood. yet it wasn't labeled in the way. and, and of course it was shocking to a certain point. and i already kind of felt like, well, i don't know if this turns out, well, it did turn well in some ways. but having after so many decades, still kind of an issue between east and west. some not really talked about if you just go for all these political currents, for instance, you see that there's quite a gap between what people in the western part of germany or voting and some of what
11:47 am
people in the, in the eastern part of oil for so you can really tell that they're still kind of interesting. some people say that there's actually become more of a divide recently that the debate about the differences in eastern west has increased and that it's important to recognize other people would say that with time, these things should of should have lessened by now while ever set for my generations, east and west, something it's still an issue isn't going to remain an issue. now it's, it's gotta become something which is a global issue. it's going to be between that up and down. it's going to be between like wealthy and, and, and i was not, yeah, ah, i had been a, grew up in east germany for her divisions and challenges remain when it comes to east and west. she shows us a picture of her 1st ever trip to the west, and once the wall came down,
11:48 am
she's written a book about the generation that grew up under those changes and challenges. her generation history always ended in 1989 with the people dancing on the wall and everyone is happy and then sort of unification. germany, boom, powerful country and that. but for us like the east germans, the 90s were still completely different than for the west germans, for the west, germans, everything continued as normal. that country just gotten a bit bigger. they had maybe more but unities to buy property or had new jobs. but for us, everything was upside down. one of the issues the day still that you feel people have issues with being from east germany having been from east germany and do people still talk in the form of eastern life? yeah, totally. i would say even more than ever, and i notice it in myself. i never, i never wanted to be in the room and i just wanted to be a german. the meaning of the word has changed because you get stereotyped so much.
11:49 am
it's germany, it's german. so you do that where your parents at this does he like to see for police or did you have enough to eat all these sort of stereotypes from the, from the ninety's have changed. they're not, they're, they're not so crude anymore. the stereotype says little bit more elaborate, maybe i would say like you always in a position to explain yourself and to justify yourself. because for me, because you're from these as a revolved, but i've often osland couldn't order for fun. so i was so minute i've, unless bunch of friends around in the that's pretty minor. one particular what happened here, just over 30 years ago, this is significant. and exactly, so people were rushing to the border crossing like was in berlin like what was one of them. and they were just sending that sort of quietly and demanding to be let
11:50 am
through. because this is for the conference. they said, now it's not as immediately like they were waiting, waiting, and inside the authorities to policemen, the soldiers, they were like super nervous and not really knowing what was going on or what, what they should do. and they couldn't reach any of the bosses. so like around 930, i think they made this decision by themselves more or less to open the bridge and people were flying over into the district of, of wedding to, to start to try to show you. i don't know. it's like, it's like a really big event and i'm really happy about that. that happened. and that was part of my, my time. so the people made this happen, you know, piece would be like, not a single shot with hire. it's a big thing. you know, saw
11:51 am
a job and we didn't have too many people in revolutions off on friday. and i remember my parents being very excited of the so called not the unification, but like something different. and i know it was in minority and like people in the info just for safety, the noise mark the unification. but not everyone was like that. and yeah, that was the cause then said when there was this election in march, it was decided that would be a relatively quick unification. not as quick as it then happened. brutal. yeah, it felt like it felt like a brutal stop. because then suddenly it was like clear that everything would be taken over from the, from, from west germany and nothing from the judea was kept. and then with an idea in 1990 basically everything she and she'll even basic things like when they,
11:52 am
when the dodge mark arrives everything the supermarkets change, you can find any, any product from the past any more. and not that you one love these old products so much, but it was like a sort of like everything that was home suddenly changed. and in my school, the teachers disappeared because they started checkups and suddenly awhile and the legacy remain strong. the says in the legacy, even after 30 years, remains very strong. now, you know, even now with this, this is also being being used to drive a competitive one could say, i mean, well, well, if you are an east german and you like want to have like a powerful position. also, you being checked, you know, there's a whole sort of chain of journalists who just sort of asked for files if there's anything you know, and the starting on the sogba file on the cell phone or in the 1st anything. or it's already enough to have like to cast a doubt. you know,
11:53 am
that you were sort of like a super mater also. and then you know, your, your korea can be ruined. i mean, so many people's career have been burned in the ninety's, and i'm not, i'm not sort of justifying what the study did. i mean, not at all. i mean people who were and so on this and to time other people of color, they shouldn't be in public position so, so, but to do is also completely mean the whole system this dies inform those when the bad guy not just singularly the bad guys. i mean, who were the people behind them? i mean, then the party. oh, so the whole, the whole functionary lead and they weren't prosecuted. but if you were lucky enough to had like sort of in your eighty's when you were 20, a couple of checks with the wrong person, this could destroy your career now. so what do you want your children? i suppose when they're older, to remember and to take away from this and maybe to teach their children. this is a 1st generation i think what the use to west conflict won't be so prevalent
11:54 am
anymore. i mean, when i was growing up, they thought that my generation wouldn't be a topic anymore, but that was wrong to take much, much longer. but i want them to know, you know, that already now in kindergarten and it's just a little bit that they get this. yeah, that sort of east germany, the g d i was to sort of prison said basically, and the life was horrible. and i, i just want them to differentiate between the state and the private lives and just sort of tell them that, you know, it was like much more complicated on a day to day to day basis. and that it's also something to be, to be proud of this project legacy. ah, do you think your children will be affected still by the east west narrative? i think it needs to be there for them,
11:55 am
but already now i see unlike people who are like young like sort of like 30, maybe for them the concession emotional thing anymore. it's not sort of they don't have the feeling to justify thing. so to they don't have her maybe, ah, an emotional legacy that takes more than the pulling down of a wall to healed. but berlin is moving forward. how did the demolition of the wall affect the infrastructure and the development of the city? let's say from, from then until now to where we are now. much of it actually has been become an opportunity for development of holding which at the moment of awful folly needed. this is also a question of justification again, because these new buildings are very comparatively expensive. and that also means again, influx off new comers. so can afford the apartments to buy to own
11:56 am
brothers, to be also beautiful apartment here or building a completely different rent level. and all these words are clashing and that's why i see the gravity here, you know, so look at that. that was maybe also just tagging, right, but also a statement of lead us as soon as the facade is newly painted, put the graph t on top, because that might keep the ram down a bit longer. you know, let's, let's resist a bit. and the resistance against the cation is now everywhere in the city, where the influx of money me, it's all, it's in grown communities. so that's the same case. and for the fine, which was east in quite back, which is west. i'm so that way if you read this again from i got to change on the money but, but again, i want to also say that in principle, this is not
11:57 am
a bad thing because of course we want the 50 to become nice. so we want you talk to be fine and the city wants to collect more texas or maybe built more public transport. so all the things in principle are good. but what needs to happen is that the citizens in this neighborhood protect it from the negative effects of that so that they do not get pushed out or that they can still. but it is possible to balance that, and i think that needs a careful balance between yes, that's free markets building new apartments also for the people are more money. why not? but at the same time, the people who have always been here to balance that and also to regulate that the change of at least don't happen too quickly and that no one is left behind. i think that's the important thing. you a lot of your life here. you are universe,
11:58 am
here. you parties, you went into this quite serious thing. re now you're helping plan the city. moving ahead like how do you feel about the changes and where the city is today? and in general, i feel good about it because yeah, i have enough out your tool and i miss some of the old pioneer dentist. open creativity and and therefore the ability also. but at the same time, look, i don't know, we have a much better choice of reference, very much more international. we hear all kinds of language. and i think, and i hope that that makes the city just richer. why not have less than 2000000 stuff along us to do nice still, dan, you know, it's just their space for both. so i think that's me
11:59 am
ah, doing the debate. you do not have vaccines reaching those who are mostly nice and amplify your voice. it allows a diverse community and how an array of different story know topic it off the table . it's such a tough ethical debate where there is an obvious discrimination in systematic discrimination of the play people or thursday for new wasted. the stream where a global audience becomes a global community on al jazeera when a war crime is committed, is it come to the, i'll just follows a garzon human rights investigator on his unprecedented journey to the french high court. i says it's
