Im Kalergi-Plan wird seit 1922 die Abschaffung der europäischen Völkervielfalt angedacht, eine „Alternativlosigkeit“ des Planes wurde herbeigeredet … und Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel wurde 2010 mit dem „Europapreis“ der „Coudenhove-Kalergi Stiftung“ ausgezeichnet.
Pan-European political activist
According to his autobiography, at the beginning of 1924 his friend Baron Louis de Rothschild introduced him to Max Warburg who offered to finance his movement for the next 3 years by giving him 60,000 gold marks. Warburg remained sincerely interested in the movement for the remainder of his life and served as an intermediate for Coudenhove-Kalergi with influential Americans such as banker Paul Warburg and financier Bernard Baruch. In April 1924, Coudenhove-Kalergi founded the journal Paneuropa (1924–1938) of which he was editor and principal author. The next year he started publishing his main work, the Kampf um Paneuropa (The fight for Paneuropa, 1925–1928, three volumes). In 1926, the first Congress of the Pan-European Union was held in Vienna and the 2,000 delegates elected Coudenhove-Kalergi as president of the Central Council, a position he held until his death in 1972.
