Eastern Germany has a special memorial relationship in many minds of South Yemen citizens. Also, many thanks for Federal Republic of Germany to the development efforts implemented by German NGOs working in Yemen such as DAAD, that offers post graduate Scholarships in Germany, GIZ which has an effective role in promoting development and capacity building as well as Friedrich Ebert Stiftung- Yemen Office which also has a clear imprint in strengthening the political and civic life. In addition , the German Culture council that plays a prominent role in highlighting the talent of Adeni young man, Amr Gamal in his play (Maak Nazil – Stop here ) which is an adeni version of the German play (Line 1) ,directed by Volker Ludwig one of the most important plays in the history of Germany today, due first show of 1986 .
But the required German intervention between citizens of the united Yemen has become a nuisance! What has changed?!
Since 1994 war, during which the second part in the Yemeni Union project, the republic of Arab Yemen, had won and gotten vital support from some of the smart southern leaders. A number of Southerners think that the fruit of this war was an occupation and thus since that date, they express their resistance and refusal in peaceful and civil ways. Also, they demand the international community, and Germany is among the first, fair intervention to help them regain their state through a public referendum, under specific standard supervised by UN that allows southerners to express their demand without any custody.
Since Philip Holsapfl, the German ambassador deputy in Yemen had written his second article (Fever or Death) that came as a style of (Unity or Death), which was a painful title by the previous president of Yemen “Ali Saleh” which means that it is a must for Southerners to keep on Yemeni Unity or they will be killed .And anger among southerners as well as the number of articles written by intellectuals in the South Yemen were rapidly increasing.
An Expert of Law and International Relations, Dr. Saqqak wrote: "on the impact of the defeat of Germany in World War I and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles International in 1919 both of which put the agreement on harsh conditions on Germany that compensated France for the loss that has befallen as a result of the war and the establishment of France to dismantle a number of factories of Germany and transported to France”.
“This agreement was considered humiliating and harsh on Germany and led to produce the emergence of Hitler and his Nazi regime, taking advantage of the terms of this Agreement to fill in the people of Germany against France to avenge them and restoring the dignity of Germany and its people. Moreover, the Nazi Hitler destroyed Hitler's Germany to the detriment of Europe's entire return. We are elite people of the south and I am one of them with associations of retirees and military and security in 2007 stood against what is our right in the South in the 1994 war genocide and the dismantling of its factories and the exploitation of its wealth of warlords in the north .the peaceful struggle and request of the disengagement did not let the case to the ethnic cleansing of the brothers in the north, but condemned localization of the human of the South by northerners and the distribution of land for free at our expense .I do not want to go even further so as not to revisit and corrupt great history of the people of Germany by Hitler and after Hitler". he added
Another artical written by Farouk Naser, the title is (You too, Hitler's grandson) : "Why we did not hear your voice and the voice of your government commenting on Abyan crimes and Al-Majela crime, Oh Hitler's grandson!!! Laoder and all Abyan liberated by its people… oh mercenary, and legendary steadfastness of Laoder's people and what about Mansoora blockade and all Aden? did what happen met with your thoughts and mind that full of Nazi Hitlar and racism or still innocent blood less than what you and US thought of?

I was surprised by this description to the right of self-determination that written by the German Ambassador Deputy! So, it is right but to used only to make the unity and also as seen from his speech is used for one time only! "

On the other hand, Ahmed AbdulElah wrote an article “Vice Gernam Ambassador puts a limit to the dialogue". In the Article: " Yemen is not Germany where the author came from and he realizes how the German unification was fulfilled and how the infrastructure development and economical programs were expensive: How this all was recruited by the treasury of West Germany for its new partner? and he remembered that one of the main parties in West Germany (the Socialists Party) did not support the idea of unification at that time until the economic recovery of East to prevent the Western dominance on the sector of the economy of the east state and which has already been when all industries of East collapsed from the very beginning unless some of which could survive. Thus, some eastern categories miss its past. However, the unity Germany was based on solidarity and sacrifice of money to raise the efficiency of the weak partner, which came in the federation in a democratic voluntary way after the elections that followed the fall of the eastern regime. And the unity was not fulfilled through an agreement that brought two leaders together who had mutual emotions in a moment when politics worn a romantic dress and there was no war ended up by one part winning and the other has been faded”.
he added: " we have to hope that the Deputy of German Ambassador does not represent the orientation of his state by his own writing, because what presented by you on a permanent basis will remain in the memory of southerners people who are keen to keep Germany as a friend in the present and future. No one believed that he was able to hit the fence about the will of a people no matter how powered is. "

It is worth to mention that the above quotes are few of many articles written in addition to protests that comes as response to what German Ambassador Deputy in Yemen wrote , in contrast to demonstrations and sit-ins of his articles condemning the repeated describe it against hostile citizens demand to recover the state of South Yemen.
And finally ... Imagine that South Yemen is East Germany, which demands secession from the Unity project with West Germany (North Yemen).
