December 11th 1948 - Founding of the FDP


On December 11th 1948 the liberal parties and movements of the West German occupation zones unite in Heppenheim, Bergstrasse under the banner of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) under Thomas Dehler. In 1949 in the first cabinet of Konrad Adenauer (CDU), the FDP puts up three ministers. But soon young liberals like Willy Weiher and Walter Scheel rebel against Adenauer and the CDU. But the ministers around Vice Chancellor Franz Blücher stand by Adenauer. At the beginning of the 1960s, the FDP, led by their new party leader Erich Mende, aims back towards another alliance with the CDU, but this time without Konrad Adenauer.
