What is the history of Germany?

History fo Germany can be traced back to ÊGermanic tribes which were followed by the Holy Roman Empire. It was post the Napoleonic wars, that the German Empire was formed. The empire, however, ended in 1918 when Germany was defeated in World War I. Strong totalitarian forces took the forefront and the Nazis seized power in 1933 i.e. the nationalistic and racist National Socialist German Workers' Party and Adolf Hitler came to power. He led Germany to war with many nations, leaving the country in ruins by 1945.Post its devastating defeat in World War II, Germany was divided into four sectors, controlled by the French, British, US and Soviet and in 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected. In the late 1960's, a sincere and strong desire to confront the Nazi past came emerged as the society became much more liberal. Germany was reunited peacefully in 1990, and the post-war limitations to Germany's sovereignty were removed.
