the first edition of the Berliner Norddeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung
was published. In the beginning, the line of the Norddeutsche
Allgemeine Zeitung was social-democratic. Quite quickly, it changed
into a nationalist-liberal, conservative line. The Norddeutsche
Allgemeine Zeitung was loyal to the government and temporarily
financed by the Auswärtige Amt, the German Ministry
of Foreign Affairs.
By the end of World War I, the name of the Norddeutsche
Allgemeine Zeitung was changed into Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (DAZ).
The task of the DAZ was to give the German empire, on the verge
of its fall, a democratic profile.
At the time of the German empire and the Weimar republic, together with
the the Berliner Tageblatt, the Vossische Zeitung and the Frankfurter
Zeitung, the DAZ was one of the German newspapers who were
well known abroad and had an esteemed reputation.
The DAZ was the most conservative and the most loyal to the
government. In 1922, its line became more and more conservative and
finally anti-republican. At the end of the '20's, the DAZ
became the mouthpiece of an elite-group of captains of industry, settled
in the Ruhr area. After being banned temporarily in 1933, the DAZ
was forced into line by the national-socialists.
The last issue of the DAZ was published in 1945.
