Helmut Kohl (1930–2017) was a towering figure in German and European politics, serving as Chancellor of West Germany from 1982 to 1990 and then as Chancellor of a reunified Germany until 1998. Born in Ludwigshafen, Kohl joined the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in his youth, rising through the ranks to become its leader in 1973.

Kohl’s tenure as Chancellor coincided with pivotal moments in history, including the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the subsequent reunification of East and West Germany. He played a central role in shaping the European Union, advocating for greater integration and the adoption of the euro currency.

Known as the “Chancellor of Unity,” Kohl’s leadership during German reunification earned him widespread acclaim both domestically and internationally. However, his later years in office were marred by economic challenges and political controversies, including a party financing scandal.

Despite criticism and setbacks, Kohl’s legacy remains significant. He is remembered as a statesman who navigated Germany through a period of profound change and played a pivotal role in shaping the course of European history. Kohl’s commitment to reconciliation and unity continues to inspire politicians and citizens alike.
