The DOM of Aachen: 1200 years ago the spiritual center of a United Europe. Charlemagne, the Germans and the French claim as their political progenitor, has made building the octagonal dome. Here he was buried since the year 814.

Student newspapers have to finance themselves. Apart from donations and the proceeds of the sale are mainly commercial ads, which the editors keep your hand above water. In the shops on the main street, they acquire orders.
For teachers and authorities, student newspapers are not always a pure delight.

But the claim by students on an own, independent voice in the school area is supported and accepted today by most teachers.
