Commission of the German Bundestag to review the history and consequences of the SED dictatorship

After the political system of the GDR collapsed and the state unity of Germany was restored, diverse private, public and scientific initiatives in the new federal states, as well as institutions and facilities, began with the historical-political reappraisal of the over 40 years of SED rule. In the course of 1991, there were increasing voices that, in addition to these initiatives, the German Bundestag should also contribute to this important task of Germany's internal unity, which not only claims great historical interest, but also to a large extent essential questions of future political formation in the united Germany concerns.
