Meine Flucht nach Europa
My Escape to Europe
This week's Die Zeit cover has the exclusive story of a reporter who made a dangerous trip across the Mediterranean with Syrian refugees. This is a little bit of a twist on Die Zeit covers, and a welcome one.
|[b] Welcome RF|
We have seen a large number of historical retrospective stories (Shakespeare, World War I, selfless givers) and current-culture pieces (business life, animal rights, and gendered life).
This is the first cover in some time to have absolutely current reporting of something other than a major news event.
Good stuff, as always. The paper actually came out on Wednesday, since Thursday is a holiday here in Germany. And how did I spend my holiday?
Well, reading the story, of course.
