Willy Brandt is ranked as the most important German politician of the postwar period. As an international statesman he met and mingled with some of the most colourful figures of the age―such as George Orwell, Marlene Dietrich and John F. Kennedy. Brandt was born inot Weimar Germany, but left had to leave the country soon after the Nazis seized power.

At the end of the WWII he moved to Berlin and soon became mayor of West Berlin. When the Berlin Wall was built he welcomed US President John F. Kennedy to the city, where he was to hold the memorable “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech. When Brandt was elected Chancellor in 1969 his Ostpolitik caused a furore. He visited East Germany, won the confidence of Leonid Brezhnev and in Warsaw, knelt before the monument to the Jewish heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. His achievements earned him the Nobel Peace Prize.
