Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung

In 1861, 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.[1]
