Washington D.C. / Dresden. June 5, 2009. The 44th U.S. President Barack Obama (47) has arrived save on Thursday evening in Germany. On Thursday morning he has addressed a high profile speech at the Cairo University in Egypt. He will stay for about 20 hours in Germany and will meet German chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel from the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU).
German chancellor Mrs Merkel is planning to talk about the peace process in the Middle East, the global financial crisis and other issues with U.S. President Barack Obama for about half an hour.
On Friday Barack Obama is going to visit the former concentration camp of Buchenwald which is now a memorial site for the victims of the German Nazi Holocaust. A relative of U.S. President Barack Obama was in 1945 one of these brave American soldiers which helped to free the victims in 1945 which have been held in the concentration camp by the Nazi regime.
In the city of Dresden people are celebrating the visit of Barack Obama. Many people in Germany do like the new President elect and are happy that he took a chance to visit Germany the third time since he has been elected in November 2008.
It is sad that most people in the city of Dresden which do welcome Barack Obama and which do love the U.S. President will have no chance to get in close contact with him or might have the chance to see their favorite U.S. President.
More than 7000 German Police officers, the German Military, Special Forces, the U.S. Secret Service and fighter airplanes are going to protect the President and will cause to separate the audience of the President from the people which do like him.
Mr. Obama is planning to visit on Friday also the Landstuhl Military Hospital of the U.S. Armed Forces and will continue his two day journey in Europe to attend the D-Day memorial service in Normandy in France on Saturday.
At the Cairo University on Thursday morning President Obama has delivered a high profile speech to the people of the Muslim world building bridges for new relations.
