On October 3, 1990 East and West Germany were reunited. The German Democratic Republic (GDR) joined the Federal Republic of Germany (BRD), and Berlin was once again designated as the capital of united Germany. KCRW Berlin Visiting Talent, Sage Van Wing attended celebrations at the Brandenburg Gate and asked attendees for their views on whether Germany was a unified country, and their hopes for the future.
