A quiz using PowerPoint - all about Germany and Austria; a little bit of Geography and History in there. I did this as an opening presentation for some of my classes back in September; but am doing it again this Monday with a different class and thought it might be useful for others. Let me know what you think - I hope it comes in handy!I HAVE EDITED SOME OF THE INFORMATION IN THE PowerPoint BASED ON YOUR COMMENTS; THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE!

This is a fantastic resource and absolutely well presented but I feel a couple of things need to be corrected in this power point presentation and hope you don't mind. The Wall separated West Berlin from East Germany, not just from East Berlin. There was also a wall between the territories of East and West Germany. Furthermore, the people in East Berlin were neither unemployed nor poor. The GDR had a political commitment which was called "das Recht und die Pflicht zur Arbeit." There was no unemployment in East Germany and I would prefer to say the living standard was lower than in West Germany but still around about the same level as in Britain under Maggi Thatcher. I was born in East Germany in 1967.
