But what has Germany become? Not what some had hoped. And the proof of that can be found in Hungary, about two hours west of Budapest, at a place called Lake Balaton.
Why mark the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall from a lake in Hungary? Because it’s where a lot of Germans have fled to who are fed up with Angela Merkel’s new Germany.
The Lake Balaton region is full of Germans who have moved here for all sorts of reasons, but a local real estate agent told us the biggest reason is migrant crime in Germany.
“At the moment our clients are 80 percent German,” Hungarian Real Estate Agent László Kozma told us, “And the main reason is the immigration problem in Germany.”
Kozma says the number of Germans moving to Lake Balaton spiked immediately after Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed over a million mostly Muslim asylum seekers into Germany in 2015.
It’s part of the reason that less than half of East Germans say reunification has been a success, and why polls have shown some former East Germans would even like to rebuild the Berlin wall.
Is Germany Becoming “East Germany 2.0”?
“It’s getting worse than the situation in East Germany because we didn’t have this,” says German evangelist and author Heidi Mund, herself a former East German, “We didn’t have this murder, we didn’t have the rape.”
But speaking out about migrant crime too forcefully in the new Germany can get you in trouble. Mund thought International Women’s Day would be a good time to speak about the danger of migrant crime to all women. Only a heavy police presence prevented her from being physically attacked by West German leftists, who spat on her and called her obscene names.
This is why some are calling today’s Germany “East Germany 2.0.” Because just like in East Germany, certain ideas are enforced, either by society or the government, and those who deviate from political correctness could lose their jobs, or even face criminal action by the state.
Famous German pastor Theo Lehmann was persecuted in the old East Germany and sees similarities to today’s Germany.
