"With the European Union offering membership to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, European unity at peace and in freedom has reached a decisive phase. The completion of Europe has its roots in the varied history of the European states, a history to which the kingdom of Prussia has contributed. The knowledge about this history with its good and bad times is one of the foundations of Europe´s future."

(Former Federal President Dr. Richard von Weizsäcker, preamble for Prussia 2001)
