Now Halle has it in writing: The city will receive up to 50,000 euros in support from the state for its application for the Future Center for German Unity and European Transformation. An agreement to this effect was signed on Wednesday, the city announced. According to previous information, cities can still apply for the location of the future center until September 30th. After that, it is planned that a jury will travel to the candidate cities and draw up a recommendation. A decision is expected at the beginning of 2023 as to which municipality should be awarded the contract for the future center. The new institution is intended to honor the East German experiences with the upheavals after unification and make the lessons learned from them usable.
