Poster by the German Socialist Party on the question of German rearmament (1954)

‘Never again! Let’s negotiate.’ In 1954, as debates are held on the rearmament of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) publishes a poster on the tragic consequences of the Second World War and the dangers of a remilitarisation of the country. The SPD, which is opposed to German rearmament as part of a future European Defence Community (EDC), calls for negotiations to be held on the issue.
