June 7th 1955 - Ministry of Defense


In 1950, the Korean War gives the first impetus for a discussion of German defense contributions. From this arises a heated debate on the rearmament of Germany during the course of the 50s. Adenauer's policy of integration with the West intensified the argument because the majority of Germans after two devastating world wars have little appetite for new armaments. They happened anyway. On June 7th 1955 the so-called "Blank Office" in which the CDU deputy Theodor Blank coordinates the negotiations on rearmament with the Western Allies on behalf of the Federal Chancellor becomes the Federal Ministry of Defense. Thus the crucial prerequisite for the formal establishment of the Bundeswehr was created in November of 1955 - a military administration which prepares the creation and structure of the Bundeswehr.
