About us

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) was founded in 1925 as a political legacy of Germany´s first democratically elected president, Friedrich Ebert.

Ebert, a Social Democrat from a humble crafts background who had risen to hold the highest political office in his country, in response to his own painful experience in political confrontation had proposed the establishment of a foundation to serve the following aims:

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, which was banned by the Nazis in 1933 and re-established in 1947,

continues today to pursue these aims in all its extensive activities.As a private cultural non-profit institution,

it is committed to the ideas and basic values of social democracy.
