Episode 3: From the 2006 World Cup to Euro 2024: How Germany (and Europe) have changed

The 2006 World Cup in Germany is fondly remembered as the “Sommermärchen,” or summer fairy-tale: marked by a growing economy in a peaceful continent, with Angela Merkel as a popular chancellor. But tonight, the 2024 Euro Cup tournament opens under notably different circumstances for the host nation: with a land war in Europe, stagnant economic growth and the political rise of the far right.
