September 15th 1949 - Konrad Adenauer becomes Chancellor


September 15th 1949: Konrad Adenauer becomes the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. The former mayor of Cologne, who was imprisoned by the Nazis, quickly rose through the ranks of the Christian Democratic Party after the war. In 1946 he took over the party chairmanship in the British occupation zone and was elected President of the Parliamentary Council in 1948, which adopted the German constitution. Today Adenauer is regarded as the forefather of the parliamentary system in post-war Germany. Despite the criticism of his unconditional pro-Western course, he contributed significantly to the rehabilitation and reintegration of the country into the world community.
