Dieses Grundgesetz, das nach Vollendung der Einheit und Freiheit Deutschlands für das gesamte deutsche Volk gilt, verliert seine Gültigkeit an dem Tage, an dem eine Verfassung in Kraft tritt, die von dem deutschen Volke in freier Entscheidung beschlossen worden ist.
Once one of my (left activists) friends was caught by police on a demonstration for shouting with a megaphone.
He went a night into the cell and was very upset by it.
He knew that the german police force (and surely some politicans) wanted him to arrest him as he was on of the left movement leaders.
Then a half a year later he was invited to the court. He pleaded to be unguilty. Then the judge asked him for a reason why he should be unguilty. He answered following:
When germany was invaded by the alliance and they won, the laws of the alliance where the legal right. In this laws stands that germany cannot upset full sovereignity and own laws until a peace contract is signed by all parties.
As there has never been a peace contract signed ALL LAWS OR CONTRACTS MADE AFTER 1945 ARE ILLEGAL!
The judge was stunned but sentenced him, anyway.
He ( my friend ) went in revision until the second highest court in germany and then a wonder happened:
The judge set him free and unguilty with the restriction to never talk about that anymore (media at all!)...
In early 1947 four million German soldiers were still being used as forced labor in the UK, France, and the Soviet Union.
In 1951 West Germany agreed to join the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) the following year. This meant that some of the economic restrictions on production capacity and on actual production that were imposed by the International Authority for the Ruhr were lifted, and that its role was taken over by the ECSC.
Although dismantling of West German industry ended in 1951, "industrial disarmament" lingered in restrictions on actual German Steel production, and production capacity, as well as on restriction on key industries. All remaining restrictions were finally rescinded in May 5, 1955. According to Frederick Gareau, noting that although U.S. policy had changed well before that; "the last act of the Morgenthau drama occurred on that date [May 5, 1955] or when the Saar was returned to Germany [January 1, 1957]."
Vladimir Petrov concludes that the Allies "delayed by several years the economic reconstruction of the wartorn continent, a reconstruction which subsequently cost the United States billions of dollars."
Main article: American food policy in occupied Germany
Germany was closed to relief shipments until December 1945. The given reasons were that they might tend to negate the policy of restricting the German standard of living. CARE package shipments to individuals remained prohibited until 5 June 1946. U.S. troops and their families were also under orders to destroy their own excess food rather than letting German families have access to it.
In 1945 the German Red Cross was dissolved , and the International Red Cross and other international relief agencies were kept from helping ethnic Germans through strict controls on supplies and on travel. The few agencies permitted to operate within Germany, such as the indigenous Caritas Verband, were not allowed to use imported supplies. When the Vatican attempted to transmit food supplies from Chile to German infants the U.S. State Department forbade it.
In early October 1945 the UK government privately acknowledged in a cabinet meeting that, German civilian adult death rates had risen to four times the pre-war levels and death rates amongst the German children had risen by 10 times the pre-war levels. In early 1946 U.S. President Harry S. Truman finally bowed to pressure from Senators, Congress and public to allow foreign relief organization to enter Germany in order to review the food situation. In mid-1946 non-German relief organizations were finally permitted to help starving German children. During 1946 the average German adult received less than 1,500 calories a day. 2,000 calories was then considered the minimum an individual can endure on for a limited period of time with reasonable health.

Q1: „Which nationality do you belong to?
Your answer might be, the „republic of germany“ but lets have a look on the passport: ...
Here you can see a part of a german passport (left) and one from austria (right).
The austrian passport states, you belong to... „Österreich“ (Austria)
But at the german one it states, you belong to... „deutsch“ (german)
Also note that the german passport is not just called passport, it is a „Personalausweiß“ - means translated „personnel-passport“! Doesnt it sound more like a pass for a corporation than a land?
This you only find in germany!
...through the cancellation of the article 23 of the „Grundgesetz“ ( basic law of the federal republic of germany...
No! This are the colours of the weimar republic!
Once again, germany as an occupied land and wasn´t allowed create a own seal, thats the reason they used the old weimar „Reichsadler“ (trans. „imperial eagle“).
No, Berlin is since war end and occupying through the allies seen as „exterritorial“ That means it has nothing to do with germany it only sits in it...
What does it have to do on a official document? Eh?
