Example text

By 1974 Brandt’s politics had been overtaken by a series of health problems and personal scandals. Brandt was prone to depression and would withdraw from the political scene, leaving others to deal with the detail of politics. He was hospitalized for an operation on his throat and the tabloid press also made big news of Brandt’s love affairs. However, his downfall came when it was revealed that his personal assistant, Günter Guillaume, was a spy for the GDR. Brandt resigned as Chancellor on 6 May 1974 and A–Z 35 was replaced by SPD politician Helmut Schmidt.

In reality it was a measure to stem the mass migration of GDR citizens and thus human capital to the west. A number of GDR citizens did manage to overcome the barrier and flee to the west through tunnels, hidden in cars, or in boats. But more than 80 were killed by border guards while attempting to escape. Willy Brandt, mayor of Berlin in 1963, negotiated with the GDR that West Berliners be allowed to pass to the East to visit relatives over the Christmas period. From 1972 the Fundamental Treaty between the two Germanys allowed for more movement and journalists and pensioners in the GDR were allowed to pass to the west.

When the Berlin Wall fell, Brandt—who was not otherwise a religious man—thanked God that he had been given the opportunity to witness the event. He addressed a crowd of East and West Berliners in front of the Berlin mayor’s office on 10 November 1989 and opened the first all-German parliamentary session in December 1990. He also led the Bundestag vote in 1991 in favour of moving the seat of parliament from Bonn to Berlin. Brandt was born Herbert Ernst Karl Frahm on 18 December 1913 in Lübeck. Brandt, who never met his father, was brought up in a working-class, social democratic family by his grandfather.
