Cold War Files: All Units: Events: The government of the GDR Resigns

November 7, 1989
The government of the GDR Resigns

The entire East German government resigned, after directing a final appeal to the public that, "in this serious situation, all energies be concentrated on keeping up all functions indispensable to the people, society and the economy." The ministers remained in office until a new cabinet was formed, and their last decision was to eliminate military instruction in schools.
