    Interesting to know
    After WW2 Germany got divided into East and West
    When the international Direct Dialing System was established in 1964
    West Germany got the country code +49
    East Germany the country code +37

    After German Reunification following the fall of the wall
    It was easy in 1993 to integrate the former East German into the West German Phone System.
    Even though reunification seamed most unlikely in the late 1960s
    when the German National Direct Dialing system became actif,
    an employe of Deutsche Bundespost,
    former PTT englobing Post Serices, Telekom and Posbank
    had blocked all numbers starting with 3
    (311 was the area code for West Berlin)
