German–Israeli relations, 1949–69
Author: Lorena De Vita

The rapprochement between Germany and Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust is one of the most striking political developments of the twentieth century. German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently referred to it as a ‘miracle’. But how did this ‘miracle’ come about? Drawing upon sources from both sides of the Iron Curtain and of the Arab–Israeli conflict, Lorena De Vita traces the contradictions and dilemmas that shaped the making of German–Israeli relations at the outset of the global Cold War. Israelpolitik offers new insights not only into the history of German–Israeli relations, but also into the Cold War competition between the two German states, as each attempted to strengthen its position in the Middle East and the international arena while struggling with the legacy of the Nazi past.

Rhineland, then West German chancellor Konrad Adenauer said in 1946; ‘[N]ationalism has experienced the strongest intellectual resistance in those catholic and protestant parts of Germany that least fell for the teachings of Karl Marx’ (cited in Weber & Kowert 2007 , 47). He thereby distanced himself at once from socialism and Prussian, state-led nationalism, to which he felt the Rhineland had never really subscribed. Concepts

a point of departure, in particular his reference to creative reconciliation. In Western Europe after the Second World War, there were people who had the courage to look at the big picture. People like Konrad Adenauer, Robert Schuman, Jean Monnet, Paul-Henri Spaak, de Gasperi and others who took the time and who had the leadership, the will and the political and personal determination to think long, think wide and to think big. They did not become lost in the micro petty details but rose above the ashes of that war, seeing hope where there was despair, opportunity

Party, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, called for protests (dubbed #Euromaidan) on his Twitter account. It was widely expected that the 2015 presidential election would be won, easily and without irregularities, by the opposition, probably with the boxer, Vitaly Klitschko, as its candidate. Washington, however, was not keen on this prospect, because Klitschko and members of his UDAR party had been groomed by the German CDU’s Konrad Adenauer Foundation. With people out in the street, Klitschko now joined the other opposition groups, including Svoboda under Tyagnybok (the only real

From the outset, Chancellor Konrad Adenauer was convinced that his government had to commit itself unequivocally to the United States. The pursuit of reunification had indeed to be a reason of state but it could only be securely realised, Adenauer believed, within the framework of the Atlantic alliance. Anybody who

to render war service involving the use of arms.’ In both its exogenous and endogenous manifestations, the effects of Stunde Null were diametrically opposed to the rearming, in whatever way, of the fledging Federal Republic. However, the imperatives of rearmament rapidly accelerated and, together with Konrad Adenauer’s disposition towards the regaining of sovereignty through alliance with the West, the task in hand became not so much if or when rearmament would occur, but how.
