The Lessons from Stalingrad

  • 1st Picture for document

In 1946, Schröder spoke repeatedly in lectures and on the radio about the inevitable consequences of the experiences of Stalingrad. On the Commemoration of the Departed, November 24, 1946, he expressed on Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk the hope that such a union beyond social and ideological boundaries like that of the National Committee for Free Germany would also be possible for Germany’s reconstruction. In “Thoughts about Time”, a radio address of April of 1947, he called the Germans to new approaches to justice and peace as well as to solidarity among one another.
