Richard von Weizsaecker

As Federal President, Richard von Weizsäcker enjoyed a high reputation at home and abroad. In particular, his speech to the Bundestag on 8 May 1985, in which he reinterpreted the defeat in World War II as a "Day of Liberation", is of central importance for the German culture of remembrance. Pictures from his tenure as Governing Mayor of Berlin, from his travels as Federal President but also from his private life can be found here.
