On the 3rd of October, the German National Day, Ambassador Achim Burkart has invited to a reception at the Embassy to commemorate the reunification of the then divided Germany.
The border between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic marked the fault line between two competing ideologies during the Cold War and the reunification is therefore not only an historic day for Germany, but it also stands symbolically for the end of the division of Europe into East and West.

15th World Day against Death Penalty
Joint opinion piece of the foreign ministers of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Slovenia and Switzerland, published in the "taz" (10.10.2017)
Today, on this World Day against the Death Penalty, we reaffirm our commitment to the universal abolition of the death penalty.
We are committed to ensuring that the dignity and human rights of each individual human being are protected, not only in our own countries, not just in Europe, but throughout the world. In our view, the death penalty is symbolic of the countless violations of human rights in today's world. The death penalty has no place in the 21st century.
