When Adenauer Goes to Moscow

Straight, Michael
June 1955
New Republic;6/20/55, Vol. 132 Issue 25, p9
The article focuses on the shift in Soviet policy towards Germany as of June 1955. One month ago, West Germany was led by militarists and revenge seekers. Now in its June 7 note, the Kremlin offers to establish good relations with the same men. The new Soviet approach to Germany is more moderate and so more powerful. No mention is made in the June 7 note of the unification-for-neutralization bargain that every responsible German party has turned down. Neutrality is left as a matter for Germans to seek or reject.
