L'Allemagne dans Les Temps modernes (1951-1956)

Abstract : During the period 1951-1956 the journal Les Temps modernes, edited by Jean-Paul Sartre, paid special attention to Germany, with some 20 articles along with literary extracts. This interest contrasts sharply with the way the journal dealt generally with Europe, which was ill-served as a geographical area. The emphasis on Germany cannot therefore be explained by the emergence of the Franco-German "couple", but was instead due to three other factors: Germany was a neighbour, Germany was a major theatre of the Cold War, and above all, the Second World War lay fresh in everyone's minds. The French and German contributors to the journal were greatly interested in the issue of West German denazification, which influenced the journal's stance on German rearmament, viewed as a threat to German reunification. Les Temps modernes also watched East Germany, which appeared a political failure, although little information percolated into France, in particular on the events of June 1953.
