A rapid rundown of German or rather Germanic "national history" – starting with the ancient Roman Empire and ending with the German "reunification" and the present day. These episodes were told by symbolic and metaphoric pictures and transformations. A sausage hereby presents a kind of timeline, a connecting element between the scenes and also an ironic national symbol.
