Central European federalists gathered in Central European Federal Youth Movement (CEFYM) and Central European Federalists (CEF) propagated throughout the period of its existence the plan of federalization of Europe. Under the influence of stagnation in the work of integration in the fifties and sixties adopted a model of integration of “Europe Homelands” presented by Charles de Gaulle, and based on a confederation of sovereign states. Recognize the Confederacy as a desirable and natural step on the way to the federation. They believed, moreover, that within the European confederation may be closer ties – such as federations, such as central Europe. Own program federalists presented in spite of historical and political events. Do not succumb to their efforts, because they thought they were guilty of their peoples and homelands. Adhered to the principle that “Victory refer only to those who have attended the organized effort, well – thought-out plan and persistence in its execution”, and that they can not settle on their own lives, to ensure a well-being, because they have to think about their child.
