ABSTRACT
The article underscores the end of the Franco-German conflict on the control of the Saar. France seized the territory in 1945 due to its rich deposits in coal. A plebiscite conducted in Saar revealed that Saarlanders prefer to rejoin West Germany. In a treaty signed by French Premier Guy Mollet and West Germany's Chancellor Konrad Adenauer on September 29, 1956 in Bonn, Saar was peacefully ceded back to West Germany.
