This site for intermediate German students provides historical background for the division of Germany, focusing on the construction of the wall, developments in East and West Berlin, political and economic problems in East Germany, and the eventual fall of the Wall. It presents texts and historic pictures of the postwar-era, study questions (in English) and follow-up assignments (in German) connected with each subunit. A relevant and interesting resource for information from this era.
There is also a sister presentation on Germany five years after the Wende. Link here will direct you to another site with a redirect link.
