The Europa-Union was the most important association working for a united Europe in postwar Germany. During the 1950’s, it received extensive press coverage by German newspapers. This master’s thesis examines the way in which in these articles constant motives of criticism show up during this period. Furthermore, it focuses on the changes in the comments on the association by journalists of the daily press. Especially the reactions on internal reorganizations resulting in a change of the presidency in 1954 caught the attention. Ernst Friedlaender and his successor Friedrich Carl von Oppenheim had a more positive attitude towards western integration than the former president, Eugen Kogon. Ernst Friedlaender also lead the association in the conflict with the European umbrella-organization Union Européenne des Fédéralistes (UEF). The examined part of the debates on the novel European Integration leads to a better understanding of our European self-conception today.
