4)    German Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer, the Maker of Europe

Discover the life and work of Konrad Adenauer, first German Chancellor and maker of the French-German reconciliation and European construction in collaboration with Robert Schuman.

This brilliant politician changed the face of post-war Germany and the course of European history. Since the end of the Second World War, he very quickly understood that a durable peace could happen only through the unification of Europe. In Germany, he is one the the heroes of the “economic miracle” that got the country back on its feet again – economically and politically – and modernized German society. In Europe, he worked for the rapprochement of France and Germany, pillar of the European construction, thanks to the support of Robert Schuman and later of Charles de Gaulle with whom he signed the Elysée Treaty in 1963, historic symbol of the friendship between these two nations but also between these two men.

14 panel boards (156 x 75 cm).

7)    France-Germany: Examples of Twinnings between Municipalities for the Construction of a lLving Europe

The twinnings are an essential and necessary element for European integration. They are a vehicle of exchanges and contribute to the creation of the civic and cultural community. In order to revitalise your partnership and find new and original ideas, the CERS can put an exhibition in French and in German at your disposal: it presents many new ideas for the enlivenment of municipal or associations twinnings. This exhibition should be used for work and is destinated to elected representatives, to the leaders of twinning committees or associations, to organisers or facilitators of meetings or exchanges. The CERS can lead your preparation meetings and help you to relaunch your twinning on a new basis.

Some high school students of the Greater Region have expressed their visions of citizenship through an “Alphabet primer of Citizenship” starting from pictures taken in their respective city illustrating an element that evokes the European citizenship. All the pictures have been gathered, captioned (in French and German) and assembled as a giant tarpaulin.

Size of the tarpaulin : 3.7m x 1.4m
