Letter of Condolence from Chancellor Schröder
to President George W. Bush
September 11, 2001
Dear Mr. President,
I was dismayed by news of the despicable terrorist attacks on
the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington
in which so many people have lost their lives.
My government sharply condemns these terrorist acts. The German
people stand at the side of the United States of America in this
I would like to express to you and the American people my deeply
felt condolences and my full solidarity. Our sympathies go out
to the victims and their families.
