Angela Merkels Weg zur Macht...
...führte nicht nur einmal über Adlershof
Ein Portrait der "Irish Times": Few traces remain of the Central Institute for Physical Chemistry in the suburb of Adlershof, part of the East German Academy of Sciences. The campus is now a business park, and the building where Merkel had her office has been demolished. The hunt for what is left of her scientific past leads past “Knut’s Sauna Club” to a long, squat building with a glass door. On the first floor is a low-ceilinged room with six windows and an old green blackboard on one wall. This is where, in 1986, Merkel defended her doctoral thesis – succesfully – to become Dr Angela Merkel.
