Birthday of German statesman Willy Brandt

18 December 1913

Willy Brandt (18 December 1913 - 8 October 1992) was a German politician, leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany from 1964 - 1987 and chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany from 1969 - 1974. He received the Nobel Peace Price in 1971 for his efforts to reconcile West Germany and the countries of the Soviet bloc. Brandt's "Ostpolitik" is his most important legacy, along with the Brandt Report, a recognized measure to describe the general divide in world economics and politics between an affluent North and a poor South. Brandt resigned as chancellor in 1974, after one of his closes aides, Günter Guillaume, was exposed as an agent of the Stasi (East German secret service).
