May 17th, 1972 - Eastern Treaties ratification with Poland and the Soviet Union


On May 17th, 1972 the Bundestag voted in favor of the ratification of the Eastern treaties with Poland and the Soviet Union by majority of the SPD/FDP coalition. The Moscow Treaty was signed in August 1970. It was based on a concept designed by Egon Bahr; "change through rapprochement" with the Eastern European States. They hoped to engage in talks with the GDR that way as well... In December 1970, shortly before the signing of the Warsaw Pact, Willy Brandt displayed a willingness to assume the responsibilities of history, by kneeling before a memorial to those who perished in the Warsaw ghetto. The CDU opposition strongly fought the Eastern treaties, viewing them rather as a loss than gain. (original sound)
