Whoa! This is serious. Very serious. And that picture. This isn't a (smiling) William Shakespeare, after all.

Die Zeit moves it to a new level with this week's cover story. There are twelve stories of people who sacrificed deeply for others.
And why would that be the topic of the week?
Well, it is...Easter...after all...
And Ostern (Easter) in Germany is big stuff. When I bought today's copy of Die Zeit tonight (a day early...since everything is in the process of shutting down for the holiday...), my buddy in the newspaper/tobacco shop, who usually says "just" schönen Abend...Tscüß!, added schönen Ostern!—Have a (wonderful) Easter!"
Exactly (genau), and not much will be happening between this morning and Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
Easter is a big deal here. Today's Die Zeit cover story has it all.
These stories run the gamut...of tales about giving of oneself to others.
