    Interesting, it seems the Einheit movement predated the "Fall of the Wall"!

    Actually the "Deutscher Volkskongress" wasn't about unity at all. Whenever the SED talked about Einheit in the first couple of years of the GDR, they always meant a unified socialist Germany. Sometimes the wording was about "neutral unified Germany" as Stalin also proclaimed in the Stalin Note (see Link (https) ), but I dare say that this was never meant in earnest, like the GDR wasn't "democratic" despite its name. Think of the Chinese government and their assurances how Hong Kong would be democratic and free.

    The Volkskongress was a kind of mock parliament, where only people picked by the socialist party were allowed:

    Thanks for that, some years ago I made a "Fall of the Wall" display.
