Hof (dpa) - Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has spoken in retrospect on the fall of the Berlin Wall and German unity of a "moment of happiness". "German unity was for me the most beautiful political experience that I had in 50 years of politics," Seehofer said in the Bavarian court. He remembers very vividly how he experienced the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, during a Bundestag meeting in Bonn, Seehofer said. The entire Bundestag rose and sang the national anthem. "That was a goose-skin experience for me, you will not forget it all your life."
