When the Paris Treaties came into force on May 5, 1955, they marked the first major turning point in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany. Ten years had passed since the unconditional surrender of the German Wehrmacht and the assumption of supreme power in Germany by the four main victorious Allied powers of the Second World War.
"We are a free and independent state", which "has now regained sovereignty and thus freedom",  proclaimed Chancellor Konrad Adenauer proudly, thereby strengthening the self-confidence of the young Federal Republic. But he knew exactly: Their sovereignty was defined politically and was subject to insurmountable restrictions as long as Germany was divided and there was no peace settlement with all four powers.
