Excerpt: The German Marshall Fund of the United States


This year the German Marshall Fund marks its 50th anniversary and the 75th anniversary of the Marshall Plan. On June 5, 1972 former German Chancellor Willy Brandt announced the founding of the German Marshall Fund of the United States at Harvard University. Founded by Guido Goldman through a gift from Germany as a tribute to the Marshall Plan, GMF is a non-partisan policy organization committed to the idea that the United States and Europe are stronger together. GMF champions the principles of democracy, human rights, and international cooperation, which have served as the bedrock of peace and prosperity since the end of World War II, but are under increasing strain.

The GMF is considered one of Guido Goldman’s greatest achievements. To mark this historic moment and to honor Guido Goldman’s legacy Berghahn is featuring an excerpt from GUIDO GOLDMAN: Transatlantic Bridge Builder by Martin Klingst.
