In 1933, he emigrated to Norway and in 1940 to Sweden, but he returned to Germany after the Second World War. In 1966, he became foreign minister in the government of Georg Kiesinger in a coalition of the center-right CDU/CSU and the social-democratic SPD. In 1969, he let a government of SPD and the liberal FDP, but resigned in 1974, when a spy of GDR was found in his administration. Part of the scandal was the fact (well-known among politicians, yet not published by the press) that Brandt was a notorious womanizer and the spy was told to "introduce women to Brandt" in one of the intercepted messages from the GDR.
