2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

1) These Marching kids have NO Clue
1st pic... My Mother (young blonde) Margarete, as a child in Kassel, Germany w/ her little brother, Dieter, my GF (Nazi) & GM. Both Mom & Uncle were HITLER JUGEND

2) She married my Dad, an American AF AP in Germany in 1951. Immigrated & became an American citizen & was until the day she died, Dec 2, 2015; 64 yrs
Not one day did she ever want to talk about her life in Hitler Jungen, but said loud speakers bellowing rhetoric drove her crazy
3) That’s me on the right, my daughter in the middle, who is now 35 with kids of her own. We were stationed in Germany for 3 1/2 Years at Giebelstadt Air Base near Würzburg. She visited us from the States.
Look closely at my mother, then look at the Nazi photo. It’s her.
