From now on, when Gudrun Sickert teaches her East German students about life in America, she will be teaching them lessons she has learned herself. Until a month ago, the 34-year-old teacher's impressions of the United States were limited to the movies and to what she had been taught in school. But now, after spending a month in Orange County along with 10 other East German teachers, those impressions have changed forever.

A pastor's daughter known for her steely ambition, Angela Merkel capped a remarkable rise through German politics Tuesday by becoming her nation's first female chancellor and the first to have grown up in the then-communist east. The 51-year-old conservative, the youngest person in the postwar period to reach the chancellor's office, will lead Europe's largest economy as head of a fragile coalition that faces high unemployment, low growth and the need to reform the welfare state.
