The Guillaume affair centred on Günter Guillaume, a personal assistant of Willy Brandt, and lead to Brandt's resignation as West German Chancellor.

Around 1973, West German security organizations[Which?] received information that one of Brandt's personal assistants, Günter Guillaume, was a spy for East Germany. Brandt was asked to continue work as usual, and he agreed, even taking a private vacation with Guillaume. Guillaume was arrested on April 24, 1974.


For the rest of his life, Brandt remained suspicious of his fellow Social Democrat and longtime rival Herbert Wehner.
