Helmut Schmidt

Chancellor of Federal Republic of Germany from 1974 to 1982
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt "There were two places in my life,
which had a very strong influence on my upbringing or education.

One was the city of Hamburg with all its advantages and all its limitations.

The other one was a village near Bremen, which is called Fischerhude, where many painters and artists worked.

Fischerhude was my intellectual home during the Nazi period."
