Two cartoon types, Zip and Zap, describe -- and depict -- German history in ten episodes, from the beginnings to the formation of the EU. Each episode is about 9-minutes long.
(A thread running through the series is the amount of national unity and centralized power there is at each stage, eventually explaining the role of the Bundestag.)
