The Berlin University bombing of 1959 was a terrorist event triggered by Neo-Nazostis that killed German Chancellor Albert Speer and Russian Chancellor Georgy Zhyukov. Zhyukov, Speer and 23 other world leaders were invited to the University as part of a series of conferences that later led to the formation of the GRABS Group. 11 of the invited people, Zhyukov and Speer included, planned to attend the meeting, with Speer and Zhyukov attending a day earlier as part of a separate conference. The full conference was called off after the bombings. The bombings also killed 38 other people in the blast, and later another 12 in the ensuing fire.
