Austrian State Treaty signed
JURIST Staff at 12:01 AM ET

On May 15, 1955, the Allied Powers of World War II and representatives of Austria signed the Österreichischer Staatsvertrag (Austrian State Treaty), which re-established Austria as an independent nation for the first time since it was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1938. The treaty explicitly forbade any future attempts to unify with Germany.
