ANWAR SADAT and WILLY BRANDT
Both statesmen sign a 7x5 photo of themselves shaking hands.
Photograph signed: "Anwar Sadat" [in Arabic script], "Willie Brandt". B/w, 7x5 overall, image 7x4¼ (one surface). ANWAR SADAT (1918-1981), a nationalistic Egyptian army officer instrumental in the overthrow of the King Farouk (1952) and a key aide (twice Vice President) to President Nasser, ascended to the Presidency himself in 1970, consolidating power and reversing many of Nasser's policies. In 1973 he launched the October War against Israel, putting up a credible fight and ultimately regaining the Suez Peninsula through negotiations. His hand thus strengthened, Sadat next braved the ire of many in the Arab World by visiting Jerusalem at the invitation of Prime Minister Begin and addressing the Israeli Knesset. An Egypt-Israeli Peace Treaty and mutual recognition, brokered by US President Carter at Camp David (1978) made Sadat a hero in the West but a villain to many in the Arab world. Sadat was assassinated during a parade commemorating the October War, October 6, 1981. WILLY BRANDT (1913-1992) was Mayor of West Berlin from 1957-1966 and became Chancellor of West Germany on October 21, 1969. His government initiated peace talks with Eastern European countries and with East Germany, resulting in non-aggression treaties with the USSR and Poland (1971) and the signing of a treaty with East Germany in 1972. Brandt was awarded the 1971 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. He resigned on May 6, 1974, following revelations that a close aide was an East German spy, but remained Chairman of the Social Democratic Party until 1987. Lightly worn at corners and edges. Slightly trimmed at right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
