Kaffeepause: What’s Abuzz in Germany?
July 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT
Johannes Leithäuser is Berlin Correspondent for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, where he covers politics. After graduating from high school, he wanted to become a captain in the navy, but he left after his mandatory service. A newspaper internship turned him on to journalism. He studied History, Economics, and Political Science in Heidelberg and Hamburg. Mr. Leithäuser joined the political section of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in 1988 and moved to Berlin in the summer of 1990. He reported on the end of the GDR, the transition in the eastern states of Saxony-Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, and the move of the federal government to Berlin. Later he covered German domestic and foreign policy – except when he was a correspondent in London from 2007 to 2012.
