“What defines us, what unites us” is the name of a series of short films produced by the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation. These films deal in a very simple and practical way with the central values of the German democracy. The topics human dignity, equal rights, freedom of expression, freedom of religion and the main pillars of our foreign policy are covered. These films are an offer to those, who have recently arrived in Germany and who wish to make it their home. The films also invite the broad public to engage in the reflection of our values, the German democracy and society as a whole.
