MICHIGAN — — — A German women’s weekly magazine has published a book about the history of its first female editor, and her editor, to mark the end of the magazine’s 50-year history.
The German weekly, Die Zeit, announced Sunday that it had hired longtime women’s editor and first assistant, Barbara Kühnlein, and editor-in-chief Anne Wölke to replace longtime editor and former editor-at-large and former staff editor and staff writer Barbara Böhm.
Kühllein’s book, “Die Zeit: A Women’s Magazine, a Century of a Century,” is due out in the spring.
She had been the magazine ‘s executive editor since 2000.
Böhn is a former staff writer for the magazine and a longtime contributor.
The news of Küln’s resignation comes as the magazine grapples with the fallout from the March 1 suicide of editor and writer Barbara Köhnlein.
Köhllein had written for Die Zeit since 2000 and left in 2004 to take a job at German news magazine Focus magazine.
In a post on her website, Böhnelein said that she had learned of her death in a text message from her husband, Frank.
“I have been deeply affected by the death of Barbara Kähnlein,” she wrote.
“She was my closest friend and my most important collaborator.
She was also the one who brought me the most beautiful children.
“Barbara made the magazine what it is today because of her. “
In the past 50 years, we’ve learned so much from Barbara and Barbara was my greatest influence,” she continued.
“Barbara made the magazine what it is today because of her.
Her impact on our work is huge. “
As a woman, she had an important role in shaping the culture of the women’s movement in Germany and around the world.
“The death of her is an enormous loss for us all,” Böhlen continued. “
Kählenlein and Böhler were part of the team that created the first edition of the German weekly in 1934, which is considered one of the first women’s publications. “
