Ramadier took part in the Resistance where he used the nom de guerre Violette. His name was included in the Yad Vashem Jewish memorial after the war. It was during his first ministry that the Communists were forced out of the government in May 1947, ending the "tripartisme" coalition between the French Section of the Workers' International (SFIO), Popular Republican Movement and Communists. He voted for the Marshall Plan.
