6-7. One of the most momentous milestones in German history was the reunification of West and East Germany in 1990. After World War II, Germany was divided into the democratic west and the communist east, with the former being occupied by American, British, and French forces and the latter by Soviet troops. By the late 1980s, Soviet-controlled communist regimes in Europe began falling one by one, heralding the victory of democracy on the continent. Under pressure from citizens, East German leaders acquiesced to a merger with their former rival to form a democratic, united Germany.
Of course, bringing the two Germanys together after such a long time apart posed significant challenges. Primary among them was the vast difference in wealth. West Germany had prospered in the post-war years due to the Marshall Plan, an American initiative dedicated to the reconstruction of war-torn Europe. However, East Germany had remained largely underdeveloped under the Soviet Union. It was only with substantial economic aid from West Germany starting in the 1990s that the East was able to begin the slow process of rebuilding.

7. What was the goal of the Marshall Plan?

(c) Facilitating an agreement between East and West Germany

6-7. 독일역사에있어서가장중요한사건중하나는 1990년동독과서독의재통일이다. 세계 2차대전이후, 독일은민주주의의서독과공산주의의동독으로나뉘었는데, 서독은미국, 영국, 그리고프랑스군이, 동독은소련군이차지했다. 1980년대말까지, 유럽에있는소련이지배한공산주의정권들이하나씩몰락하기시작했고, 유럽대륙에서민주주의의승리를알렸다. 시민들이압박하에서, 동독의지도자들은이전의경쟁자였던서독과의합병을묵인하여민주적인통일서독을만든다.
물론, 이렇게오랫동안분리된독일을하나로만드는데는상당한도전이따랐다. 그중가장주된도전은바로엄청난부의격차였다. 서독은전쟁이후마셜플랜때문에번성했는데, 이는전쟁으로찢긴유럽을재건하려는미국의계획이었다. 그러나, 동독은소련의통제하에서대부분개발이이뤄지지못한채로남아있었다. 바로 1990년대에시작된서독의상당한경제적지원이동독의느린재건을비로소시작할수있게한것이었다.
(c) 세계 2차대전이종전될때독일의항복
(b) 세계 2차대전동안생긴빚을갚는돈을모으는것
