In Germany, during the cold war, Children’s Day (Kindertag) was handled quite differently in West Germanyand East GermanyThey were held on different dates in these two states. East Germany celebrated Children’s Day on June 1 while West Germany celebrated it on September 20. The official names of Children’s Day were also different. In East Germany, it was known as “International Children’s Day” (Internationaler Kindertag), whereas in West Germany, it was called “World Children’s Day” (Weltkindertag).
After the Reunification of West and East Germany occurred in 1990, the date and name of the event used in the West have become the official ones for the former East as well. This however was not accepted by large parts of the former East German population. Most parents still celebrate Children’s Day on the former date of June 1, and public events pertaining to Children’s Day take place on September 20.
