Willy Brandt, My Life in Politics

In his memoirs, the former German Chancellor, Willy Brandt, recalls the signature of the German-Polish treaty, on 7 December 1970 in Warsaw, under which both countries recognised, in particular, the inviolability of existing common borders. He also remembers the symbolic importance of his kneeling before the memorial dedicated to the victims from Warsaw's Jewish ghetto.
