  • 1985by Michael Ploetz; Mechthild Lindemann; Christoph Johannes Franzen

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 164.83

    1985 was a year of coming to terms with the past: while German President von Weizsäcker won international praise, the visit to a Nazi war cemetery by Chancellor Kohl and Ronald Reagan aroused indignation, especially in the United States.
