One week after the events at the US Capitol, Ambassador Haber shares this message with you, our American friends:
“It’s a difficult moment for the US, but I want to offer you some optimism.
You probably know the Reichstag building. It often evokes a dark chapter in Germany’s history. And not just the distant past; there was a near-storming by the far-right last August.
Nonetheless, it is a place of pride: the location of the Bundestag, the heart of German Democracy.
It is a representation of the idea that with dedicated citizens and steadfast allies, we can live out our values- always imperfectly, but with ‘a more perfect union’ in mind.”
-German Ambassador Emily Haber
