Founded until the 1970s
The first edition appeared on August 1, 1948 in the newly founded Stern-Verlag Henri Nannen, which was based in the Anzeiger high-rise in Hanover. This became possible after Henri Nannen had received approval from the British military government in July 1948 to rename the former youth magazine Zick-Zack to Stern , for which he had taken over the license a few months earlier . The cover picture of the first 16-page edition of the new Stern 1948 adorned the young Hildegard Knef in the hay.
In the opinion of historians who publish on the founding history of the Stern , the magazine's design was based on the glossy and glamorous paper “ Der Stern ” designed by Kurt Zentner , which came onto the market in September 1938 and had a circulation of up to 750,000 Copies developed into a best seller. Nils Minkmar emphasized that the famous cover of the first post-war edition with Hildegard Knef looks like a duplicate of the old Stern No. 25 from June 1939 with Brigitte Horney and points out that Zentner worked for Nannens Stern at times , in the second half of 1951 during Nannens extended stay in America even for 14 issues as acting editor-in-chief. The star addressed its genesis in 2018 as part of publications on the magazine's 70 years.
In 1950 the English administration banned the magazine for a week after an article about the waste of the Allies at the expense of the Germans. After Gerd Bucerius had already acquired 50% of the Stern in 1949 , Henri Nannen sold a further 37.5% of the shares in Bucerius and 12.5% to the printing company owner Richard Gruner , who in 1965 merged with the publishers John Jahr senior and Gerd Bucerius in 1951 merged to form Gruner + Jahr GmbH & Co. KG. Since then, the star has also been relocated there.
In 1962, the editor also intervened in one of the most spectacular art thefts of the German post-war period. Tilman Riemenschneider promised the thieves of the so-called Volkach Madonna through the magazine a "ransom" of 100,000 DM if the work of art was returned undamaged. The appeal “Give back the Madonna von Volkach !” Led to a nationwide discussion in which Nannen was reported several times for receiving stolen goods. The intervention of the newspaper finally led to the recovery of the stolen goods from the " Madonna robbery ".
On June 6, 1971, the star appeared with the then spectacular title: “We have aborted!” (Issue 24/1971). The action was initiated by Alice Schwarzer . 374 women publicly confessed to their abortion . Alice Schwarzer, the actress Inge Meysel and the writer Luise Rinser sued Stern and Henri Nannen unsuccessfully in 1978 as part of the so-called sexism lawsuit because of the "representation of women as a mere sexual object" on Stern covers. The occasion was a cover picture that showed the model Grace Jones , known for flashy outfits and her personal closeness to sadomasochism , and came from the famous photographer Helmut Newton .
In 1978 the two journalists Kai Hermann and Horst Rieck interviewed the then 15-year-old Christiane Felscherinow for the Stern report “ Babystrich ”. These interviews resulted in the book Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo , which Stern printed in excerpts and later translated into many other languages and also made into a film.
1980s and 1990s
The headline " Hitler's diaries discovered" was emblazoned on the star of April 28, 1983 . Actually, this should be the beginning of a series of months. But the diaries turned out to be forgeries . The publication became one of the biggest press scandals in Germany in 1983. In a subsequent edition of the same year, the star presented a reappraisal of the affair. The editors put all the researched details on the table. In 2019, the star reopened the case with the ten-part, weekly podcast “ Faking Hitle r”. With previously unpublished material, he describes the relationship between Konrad Kujau and the former Stern reporter Gerd Heidemann .
In 1987 the photo of the politician Uwe Barschel , Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein 1982–1987, lying dead in the bathtub caused a stir. The star reporter Sebastian Knauer was the politician in his hotel room in Geneva found dead and photographed. The photo of the body was published in newspapers, magazines and on television .
The magazine has also been online with Stern.de since 1995. The online offer is operated by G + J Medien GmbH. Stern.de is divided into independent sections . Anna-Beeke Gretemeier has been editor-in-chief of Stern.de since October 2017. Since the beginning of 2019, Stern and the digital offering stern.de have been managed under a joint dual leadership made up of Anna-Beeke Gretemeier and Florian Gless.
The Brussels star correspondent Hans-Martin Tillack won a case against the state of Belgium in 2007 . In March 2004, the Belgian police searched his office and private rooms and confiscated files . The European Anti-Fraud Office (Olaf) accused Tillack of possibly bribing one of his employees to get information. Previously, he had reported several times on corruption in the EU on the basis of Olaf documents . At the beginning of 2008, the reporters from Stern and Stern.de uncovered that the employees of the food discounter Lidl were being monitored. The star reported on the so-called "Lidl scandal" in the 14/2008 issue. The reporting sparked nationwide discussions about the protection of employees. In January 2009, the star made a data scandal at Deutsche Bahn public. The magazine reported that more than 1000 employees, including from upper management, were "spied on" on a large scale. A publication in January 2013 by Stern Online via a Swiss numbered account revealed the tax evasion of Uli Hoeneß , who was subsequently sentenced to three years and six months imprisonment in 2014 . The publication of the portrait Der Herrenwitz about Rainer Brüderle by Laura Himmelreich in January 2013 sparked an extensive debate about sexist remarks and attacks that women are exposed to in their everyday lives. The topic was taken up in many print media and television programs such as the talk shows Markus Lanz , Maybrit Illner and Günther Jauch, as well as in the international press.
In January 2019 the publishing house Gruner + Jahr donated the analogue photo archive of the Stern to the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich in order to preserve it in the long term and make it accessible to the public and research. The archive contains more than 15 million prints , negatives and slides from the years 1948 to 1997.
For World Climate Day 2020, the printed edition (number 40, September 24, 2020) was jointly developed and produced in a comprehensive and unique cooperation with Fridays for Future . In addition to the printed edition, the digital offers for 2 days were devoted almost exclusively to the climate crisis together with FFF . Since outsiders were able to influence the creation of the magazine for the first time in 72 years, this was also discussed controversially.
On March 1, 2021, the Sterns main city editorial team and the editorial offices of Capital and Business Punk magazines merged . The political and economic editorial office of the star in Hamburg was dissolved.
