Günter Gaus’ 90th Birthday (* November 23, 1929)

Günter Gaus is one of the most brilliant journalists in Germany, one of the most committed protagonists in the German-German détente and last but not least an excellent diplomat.

After studying German literature and history he starts writing for daily and weekly news outlets such as “Sueddeutsche Zeitung” and “Der Spiegel”. In 1963 the German public television launches the legendary program “Zur Person” (Engl. “Personal Information”) with Gaus has a host. In the course of about 40 years Gaus conducts more than 200 interviews with politicians, artists and scientist. His portrayal of personalities such as German chancellor Konrad Adenauer, the “father of the hydrogen bomb” Edward Teller, the writer Christa Wolf and the incarcerated RAF terrorist Christian Klar is both powerful and profound. His talk with the political philosopher Hannah Arendt has even become a youtube hit in recent years.  

From 1965 until 1968 Gaus is the program director for radio and television at Südwestrundfunk (Engl. ”Southwest Broadcasting”), after that “Der Spiegel” hires him as editor in chief. In this position he is an outspoken supporter of chancellor Willy Brandt’s “Ostpolitik”. He eventually leaves “Der Spiegel” for a career in civil service. When the German-German Basic Treaty is finally signed in 1974 he goes to East Berlin and heads the first “permanent mission” of the Federal Republic of Germany in the German Democratic Republic. As chief negotiator he partakes in the drafting of 17 treaties between the two states and achieves a number of mitigations in the German-German relations. After clashing with chancellor Helmut Schmidt he returns to journalism in 1981 and writes about the political situation of the Federal Republic of Germany, about the German question and national security policy. Gaus receives several awards for his journalistic achievements. After a long illness he passes away in 2004 in Reinbek near Hamburg.
