On 7 December 1970, German Chancellor Willy Brandt spontaneously knelt down while visiting a monument to the Nazi-era Warsaw ghetto uprising in the Polish People's Republic, surprising everyone.
The occasion was the signing of the Warsaw Treaty between West Germany and the Polish People's Republic. It should be noted that Brandt himself had always been a fierce opponent of the Nazi regime.
In Germany, Brandt's gesture was highly controversial and unpopular, especially among conservatives and liberals, but also among many social democrats.
