The opening of the Hague Congress (The Hague, 7 May 1948)

On 7, 8, 9 and 10 May 1948, various militant pro-European associations meet in The Hague under the honorary chairmanship of the former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, to encourage governments and the general public to act in favour of a United Europe. The event leads, five months later, to the establishment of the European Movement which will subsequently play a part in the setting up of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.
