Cartoon by Behrendt on the EDC (1 September 1954)

‘Ladies and Gentlemen, the show has been cancelled!’ This is how the Netherlands receive the news of France’s rejection, on 31 August 1954, of the Treaty establishing the European Defence Community (EDC), which has, however, already been ratified by Germany and the three Benelux countries.
