Description                           Estimate: $800+          

Signed copy of a White House press release, seven pages, 8.5 x 14, of the speech Reagan delivered at Hambach Castle in the Federal Republic of Germany, on May 6, 1985. In part: “More Americans trace their roots to this land…than to almost any other place or people in the world…From here…thousands left to cross a mighty ocean, to push back America ’s frontiers and to help us win a great struggle for independence…They were with us the day we won the historic battle of Yorktown…Europe today—divided by concrete walls…is living portrait of the most compelling truth of our time—the future belongs to the free—Europe is divided because part of Europe is not free…History is on the side of those struggling for a true revolution of peace…The first frontier of European liberty begins in Berlin…America will stand by you…Unlike your cousins on the other side of the wall, your future is in your hands…It is Europe that has known more tragedy and triumph than any place in history…Today, only 40 years after the most devastating war known to man, Western Europe has risen in glory from its ruins…The experts said the Federal Republic could not absorb millions of refugees, establish a democracy on the ashes of Nazism and be reconciled with your neighbors. You did all three.” Signed at the bottom of the first page, “Thought you might like to see this. Ronald Reagan.” In fine condition. During his speech, Reagan also made references to his ‘Star Wars’ missile-defense program, as well as the solidarity movement in Poland. His support for the reunification of Germany was certain to upset the Kremlin, which considered the borders agreed on at the end of World War II to be inviolable—especially the division of Germany so it could never again be a military threat. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
