The only real credit that Kohl deserves is brokering the deal about East Germany (that was like a void zone without accepted form of government at the time) with Gorbatchev in the talks in Russia. The speeches he gave here were on different and mostly pathetic topics.
The A side speech is about a 10 points plan to "unite" (effectivly annexation) the territory of east germany. B side holds 2 highly pathetic speeches that were already behind the timeline (which was dictated by the east german people in the streets and the improvised east german authorities like "Neues Forum" and "Runder Tisch" which dealt with day-to-day issues).
Unfortunately most of the east german population was mainly interested in western consumer goods and money, quickly adapting primitive manners of the west and abandoning the revolutionary spirit. By spring 1990 the public opinion was turned with a great deal of propaganda and financial support from the west (Kohl led the "Alliance for Germany") towards unconditional annexation. It turned out to be a political mistake later on, causing economic crisis and budget deficit in the german government household.
But Kohl and his team pushed for the fast lane and that came out of it. He had to step down after 16 years as chancellor because of a bribery scandal that he very obviously was involved in. By the time he developed an extremly arrogant style of reign.

This record contains three historic speeches from the year the Berlin wall came down. However the term Berlin wall is a little bit to undermeaning, to really describe what happened in that year. It was not only Berlin, but a country of 16 million people that was kept in custody by its own criminal government of communist slaveholders. Whatever your standing is towards the conservative - and without a doubt controversal - politician Helmut Kohl, these speches are not only rethorical on a very high lvel but also give deep insight on what happenend during that year. When you listen to the Berlin speech, with people shouting in excitement, you will be able to understand at least a bit how emotionally moving these moments were for the people. While the later years of Helmut Kohl's chancellorship must be seen criticial, he was the right person for this era. And - like him or not - these three speches are truly historical material with true rethorical quality, opening a window into one of the brightest and happiest moments of Germany history.
