How A German Newspaper Became The Go-To Place For Leaks Like The Paradise Papers
Süddeutsche Zeitung has, in recent years, pulled even with, or perhaps surpassed, the Frankfurter Allgemeine as the daily newspaper of record in Germany. Its home town, Munich, is a wealthy and politically powerful business hub, with the headquarters of giant corporations such as Siemens, BMW, and Allianz. The paper, a left-of-center institution in conservative Bavaria, traces its origins to the aftermath of the Second World War. Following the war, Allied forces dissolved all existing newspapers in Germany. A group of German journalists, some of whom had worked in opposition to the Nazi Party, received the first printing license issued by the U.S. military’s Munich press office. As the story goes, the same printing press that had been used to print “Mein Kampf,” whose publisher was based in Munich, was melted down and reconfigured, and then used to print the first issue of Süddeutsche Zeitung, on October 6, 1945.
“This is the spirit of this newspaper,” Wolfgang Krach, Süddeutsche Zeitung’s editor-in-chief, told me. “It has to do with the self-consciousness and the attitude of the people here.”
