  1. Hello, isn’t it rather April 16, 1948 for the creation of the OEEC? (Thank you for your lessons!)

    1. We had already made the change, but we still failed to thank you for your comment… three years later! Better late than never so thank you, The Academics in Politics team

  2. @Papy W. : Hello @Papy W., this is all the more valued because it is not the essential fact. It is voluntary indeed, and it is a good reflex to think about it (we all have this photograph in mind), which will be well valued for the copy. To be placed in particular in a copy of France – Germany’s relations. Good luck to you

  3. Hello, I have a quick question: You don’t talk about it and yet it’s a news item (I don’t know if we can call it that but good) very symbolic: The Mitterand – Kohl handshake in Douaumont in 84. It’s a choice because it’s not something important or valued in a copy; or just an oversight? THANKS !

  4. @Seemann: Hi Seemann, you absolutely need to look for more info. The cards give excellent indications, a good summary, and they also are aptly named: “cards”. That is to say, you have to deepen them, look for complements for each element, enrich yourself from different media. Good revisions to you Seemann, hoping to have been able to answer precisely,

  5. Good morning ! I just read the sheets on your site and I was wondering if it was enough to learn them as they are or should we go and find other information ourselves? THANKS:)

  6. @Valentine33: Hello Valentine33, we do our best to be at your service. We can only report you our indications on Eastern Europe. Thank you for your patience because it is a long-term job, good day.

  7. Good evening, I am taking the science po competition on Saturday and I am missing the form: VI. B. Eastern Europe and people’s democracies. Would it be possible to post it tomorrow? I couldn’t find anything on the internet or in the history of first class history on this subject. Thanks in advance.
