State existing from 1949 to 1990, named "German Democratic Republic" and was founded after WW2 in the east of Germany. Meant to be a state like Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels imagined it. between 1961 and 1989, the borders of the GDR have been shut. About 1'000 people were shot trying to cross the border to be free. Now, the former inhabitants of the GDR are called "Ossis", the inhabitants of the capistalistic Germany are called "Wessis". Many young Ossis think it's cool to want the GDR back and saying it was good, denying that there was no right for free opinion etc.

The German Democratic Republic (GDR), or simply East Germany as it was commonly known, was a communist state that existed from 1949 to 1990 in the eastern regions of Germany. It was formed following World War II in the Soviet occupation zone.

Although the richest country in the former Eastern bloc, many East Germans tried to escape to West Germany, which enjoyed far greater freedoms and economic conditions. The GDR was known for its effective intelligence service, the Stasi. The Stasi monitored every aspect of life in the GDR with one in fifty East Germans being an informer.

Following the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of all border restrictions, the GDR was officially abolished in 1990.
