Europe: A Continent of Reconciliation?
40 Years after Willy Brandt's Visit to Warsaw
Conference on December 7, 2010, Royal Castle of Warsaw
Willy Brandt’s gesture on December 7th, 1970, was a striking sign of reconciliation between Poles and Germans. The Treaty of Warsaw gave the event a political foundation and initiated political cooperation between the two countries on both sides of the Iron Curtain. The visit of the German chancellor to the Polish capital was a milestone on the way to European reconciliation, rapprochement between East and West and European Integration.

During the conference at the Warsaw Royal Castle international figures from the fields of politics and science will commemorate the historical event that took place 40 years ago.
