Ministry Detlev Rohwedder and the Treuhandanstalt
Following German reunification on 3 October 1990, the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Bundesrechnungshof (Germany’s supreme audit institution) moved into what is today the Detlev Rohwedder Building. Between 1991 and 1995, the remaining space was used by the Treuhandanstalt, the agency set up to privatise assets formerly owned by the East German state. The building was given its present name on 1 April 1992, in memory of the Treuhandanstalt’s first president, who had been assassinated a year earlier.
