50th Anniversary of the Signing of the Treaty of Moscow (August 12, 1970)

On August 12, 1970 Chancellor Willy Brandt, Premier Alexei Kosygin and the German and Soviet foreign secretaries sign the German-Soviet treaty. It is the first of the so-called Eastern Treaties and lays the foundation for „change through rapprochement“. The ceremonial act takes place at St. Catherine Hall in the Grand Kremlin Palace, a place with history: 31 years earlier the notorious German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact between Hitler and Stalin was signed right here.   

The central points of the Moscow Treaty take into account the lack of a formal peace treaty between Germany and its former enemy. 25 years after the end of World War II the contracting parties renounce the use of force and recognize the post-war borders, in particular the Oder-Neisse-line, aka Poland’s Western border, and the German-German border. Similarly sounding agreements are subsequently negotiated with Poland (Warsaw Treaty), the German Democratic Republic (Basic Treaty) and the Czech Republic (Prague Treaty). The Four Power Agreement on Berlin regulates the legal status of the divided city.

The Moscow Treaty commences the Ostpolitik of the Social Democrats. While it has the unanimous support of the Western Allies, domestically it is rather controversial. Critics fear the sell-out of German interests, the final loss of the former German eastern territories and that the de-facto-recognition of the GDR prevents the German unification. Proponents on the other hand argue, that it was impossible retrieve what had been lost anyway, and that a unification was only possible if a pan-European peace plan was in place. The irreconcilability of the differing viewpoints leads to a governmental crisis. When the CDU’s vote of no confidence turns out a failure the Bundestag factions decide on a compromise. The Bundestag ratifies the German-Soviet treaty as well as the Warsaw Treaty in 1972, with most of the conservative parliamentarians abstaining. Willy Brandt is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize a year earlier, to recognize his reconciliatory efforts.
