Few Germans thought about preserving significant parts of the wall in , as a cautionary tale. Today, many Berliners regret the haste with which it was demolished and sold in bits and pieces. West Berlin chauvinism, lording it over the humiliated East, hastened the destruction of many East Germany landmarks that, also unpredictably, are now prized as architecturally significant and historically irreplaceable. Schaefer pointed out. The absence of the wall is today a handy metaphor for a world whose divisions, religious and cultural, are everywhere and often invisible.
It left vast empty spaces that have turned out to be civic boons in ways politicians and planners 25 years ago did not foresee, just as it freed citizens from the constraints of oppression to explore ambition and opportunity. The emptiness attracted a new generation. It provided space to dream up clubs in bunkers, galleries in old department stores. Berlin was unfinished, like this generation, which pioneered ad hoc, improvisatory, piecemeal development. Schaefer half-jokingly put it — Berlin suited a post-wall, urban-minded, D. The triumphal narrative came later. For a long while, the story of reunification entailed unrest, unemployment, division.
Many West Germans resisted the economic burden of reunification; East German dissidents had wanted to liberalize East Germany, to gain access through the wall, but not to be annexed.
As with Berlin, so it was with all of Germany that an identity envisioned 25 years ago did not quite come to pass. Today Germany straddles the diplomatic fence between an increasingly assertive Russia and the West. It is reluctant to save Europe from fiscal malaise. Struggling neighbors regard it as a kind of polite bully.

Two distinct Germanys during the Cold War have yielded not to what leaders in the Western political class feared after reunification but to a single, fuzzier, more reticent nation in a world that has become not safer and flatter — as the fall of the wall promised — but more violent, tribal, fractured and unpredictable. Reich said. The elderly left.
Vati by Peter Schneider
It vanished, like the wall, among the most audacious works of modern architecture. For decades, the wall made concrete a world divided by dueling superpowers.
