Celebration of the Elysée Treaty (01.22.2021) [fr]
Signed by French President Charles De Gaulle and West German Federal Chancellor Konrad Adenauer on January 22, 1963, the Elysée Treaty established a new relationship of cooperation and friendship between France and Germany, in support of European integration.
On January 23, 2020, we commemorated the 58th anniversary of the signing of the Elysée Treaty during an event co-organized by the Alliance Française d’Atlanta and the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, with the support of the Consulate General of France and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
During this virtual event, French Consul General Vincent Hommeril and German Consul General Dr. Heike Fuller delivered speeches on the importance and strength of French-German cooperation. The event also included musical performances and the reading of texts in French and German.
The day of commemoration also provided a moment of conviviality for the two consuls. Champagne and French red wine and along with German beer and white wine were on the menu during an event at the French Residence.
It was the perfect moment to toast to French-German friendship.
