The rivalry of the systems following 1945 brought about a political fragmentation in a small area in Southeastern Europe that was second to none.

While in Britain and Denmark the legacies of the Cold War have since been registered as part of the culture of remembrance and in some cases protected as memorials, in Germany the sensitivity for this chapter of recent history is still lacking. The disinterest of the federal, regional and municipal governments is primarily an expression of the historical amnesia abounding since the 1990s. By Ulrich Mählert.

The use of chemical weapons in Vietnam and nuclear testing in general are but two illustrations of the obvious fact that this global conflict of systems also had effects on the environment.
