The German Language Column
Word!

How does one find one's way around the rules of the German language, where do new words come from, and what are the most important changes in the use of the language - for example, due to digitalisation and a higher sensitivity due to the gender issue? These and other exciting topics are the focus of our column about the German language.

Shaping the past

How does the past take shape? What happens in the process of coming to terms with the past? What social repercussions are associated with the rooting of history in monuments and memorials? How can those narratives be shifted or upended through alternative, innovative approaches to memorialization?

German cities
On the road with Rahel

Fresh air, clean drinking water, a park nearby, nice neighbors. People who are there for each other and take each other into consideration. That is what the Germans want in their cities. What are you doing for it? And what are the problems? Rahel Klein visits cities in Germany for you - and shows how people are committed to making them more liveable.
