The big tattoo for Chancellor Merkel
Angela Merkel’s chancellorship is drawing to a close. At the end of her 16-year term in office, she was adopted by the Bundeswehr with a big tattoo. The ceremony is the highest form of military homage to German soldiers. Personally selected pieces of music by the honorees will also be played. Merkel wanted the GDR hit “You forgot the color film” from Nina Hagen, as well as the chanson “For me it should rain red roses” by Hildegard Knef and the hymn “Great God, we praise you”.
