In Germany: the citizen Minister Hilde Heinemann at the mourning ceremony to honor her late husband in Bonn. With a State funeral in the Chamber of the Bundestag, the Federal Republic officially took leave of former Federal President Heinemann. His successor in the Office of Walter Scheel paid tribute to Gustav Heinemann as a personality, which it was important to make the world more humane, fair and reasonable: Federal President Walter Scheel: "according to the understanding of our basic law, it is the noblest task of the head of State, to integrate, in the party State similarities appear to have, to wake up trust and confidence and to promote. Gustav Heinemann has done that on his own way and done."

Gustav Heinemann has incited A lot and set in motion. His election was a sign of the change in the political arena. In the autumn of the same year, the first social-liberal coalition headed by the Social Democrats took over the Government. Hamed post-war career as Mayor of Essen, his hometown. His political path was for friend and opponent of impressive directness. Guiding principle has always been his Christian conscience for his actions. He once said: "Not war, peace is the real thing, where we have to prove to us." Heinemann was little outer shapes and characters of his Office.
Former Federal President Gustav Heinemann: "also the representative duties of the President are a piece of political task. "It it should even just because he represents the Federal Republic that is domestic or foreign, help, that the citizens of the Federal Republic of themselves as parts of a large community and feel."
In November 1969, Queen Juliana Gustav Heinemann received a State visit to the Netherlands--it was the first State visit of the President after his inauguration and the first visit by a German head of State in the Netherlands after the war. The visit of the Jewish monument in the old Dutch Schauburg Hamed reminder should make clear: "only if we even remember we are can help others, to forget." Also on his travels abroad, Heinemann sought the conversation again and again with the population. Talking to to bridge differences To find in it the President saw one of his most pressing tasks understanding for the problems of others. A little citizen President Gustav Heinemann enjoyed the strict ceremony of tradition, with the United Kingdom in 1972 gave to the President on his visit.

Understanding of a restless youth, preoccupation with random groups. Also featured was for minorities, Gustav Heinemann.
The attention of everyone for the concerns to raise less, therefore it was him. As the Federal Minister of Justice in the Grand Coalition he wanted that the right past no longer lived on the development trends of the time. The right political order of our time name is reform, not restoration, he wrote at the time and held it also. In his farewell speech as President before the Bundestag on 1 July 1974, he took stock: "one has sometimes called citizens President me. So my effort is meant to reduce the distance which is given with the highest Government Office to the citizens as far as possible. I wanted to be not separated from the daily worries and hopes of my fellow citizens. I wanted to help. Subject disposition and subservience in civic responsibility to transform."
In Holland: more safety in traffic safer driving - a claim which in all European countries various institutions dealing with. In the Netherlands, for example, the Foundation for the scientific study of safety works on methods and techniques, that the risk of an accident is avoided, or at least reduced. The Dutch developed a double guard rail, which had been constructed as "flexible", that also double cars in a collision on the road be thrown back. This security system now adopted by most European countries. Understandably, the special interest of the Dutch is fighting to the death in the water. In several large To try, they tested how car occupant must behave, to leave a car crashed into the water under its own power. In most cases, the car floats for a while. Seat belts reduce the risk of injury or paralysis of consciousness: driver, reacting in panic, are already lost. The car floats can save themselves may be through a sunroof. The car, drops you must flood him. Once inside and out of the same water pressure, driver and front passenger have the chance "to get out". The "test pilot" for a series of other experiments was little chance. The dummy dummy was used in its place. Lamp posts are always a source of danger. The Foundation for the scientific study of the safety moved the realization that lamp posts must be differently built and anchored in the soil from their attempts. If they break just above the road surface at a certain impact strength, the risk of injury for the driver is at its lowest. Safer driving: almost 3,000 deaths in 1975 in the Netherlands - in the Federal Republic of Germany there were around 15,000 - force road, automotive and traffic safety authorities always to ratchet up the safety requirements.
