Too artistic, too modern and avant-garde for the Nazi soul – was that the reason why the Munich director Willy Zielke fell out of favor with the regime in 1935 with his film “Das Stahltier”? And ended up in psychiatry? Or did the filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl have her fingers in the pie? There are still many unresolved questions surrounding the Willy Zielke case. Filmmaker Nina Gladitz gets to the bottom of these questions in her book “Leni Riefenstahl: The Career

The Chancellor’s name was Helmut Schmidt, the Red Army faction terrorized the country and Borussia Mönchengladbach became German football champions for the third time in a row. In 1977 Anton Plattner started to be a football coach, at that time with TSV Eching in the national league. This Saturday, the now 73-year-old coach ends his career with SV Dornach’s last game of the season in the North District League at home against FC Alte Haide –
The federal road B 11 between Munich-Solln and the so-called Maier-curve at the southern end of Pullach will be renovated from Thursday, May 26th, so road users can expect diversions for about three weeks. The measure is divided into two construction phases, the first of which will begin on Ascension Day, weather permitting. Up to and including Sunday, May 29, the B 11 between Wilhelm-Leibl-Straße in Munich-Solln and the St. Gabriel monastery will receive a new binder course and a
In the ongoing discussion about a temporary extension of the operating life of nuclear power plants, the two constituency deputies from Unterhaching, Kerstin Schreyer (CSU) and Claudia Köhler (Greens, ) only agree on one point: “I never thought that I would be standing here and will speak in favor of extending the lifetime of nuclear power plants,” said Schreyer on Thursday in the Bavarian state parliament, but world politics have changed. “I would not have thought it possible that there
On September 11, 2001, the Unterhaching municipal council made an epoch-making decision when it decided to start using geothermal energy. The decision made by the committee on Wednesday is no less sensational: by 2027, the district heating network of the municipality, which is fed with geothermal energy, is to be completely expanded and every interested party is to be guaranteed a connection to deep heat.
It is an extremely ambitious project that Mayor Wolfgang Panzer (SPD) and the managing director
Due to a lack of staff, the municipality of Haar is forced to temporarily close its indoor pools for public bathing operations. The pool in the Jagdfeld school center and the pool in the Konradschule are not available from May 23rd to June 19th inclusive. The reason given for the move is that seasonal workers are hard to find after a two-year break due to the coronavirus. Bathers are recommended to switch to the outdoor pool. In this, however, the
It’s the smell. Old buildings carry it with them, for decades or even centuries, and bring back memories. The beams, the wood paneling and the massive staircase also exude history and stories in the light yellow building on the Oberhachinger Kirchplatz and let Stefan Schelle mentally travel back to the year 1970 whenever the heavy wooden door slams behind him and he is in the hallway of the old schoolhouse stands. It is a feel-good smell for him, it has
For four weeks, Tobias K. stood as a teacher in front of the third grade at the Pater Rupert Mayer elementary school in Pullach and gave “solid lessons for a career changer”, as his employer, the Archbishop’s Ordinariat, reports. On Monday, the 23-year-old was picked up from school by Grünwald police officers for questioning. The young man is, that’s for sure, an impostor, not a trained elementary school teacher. He got his job by using forged certificates.
The young man
The sun is shining, the sky is blue – ideal conditions to affirm and deepen the importance of Franco-German relations in a festive atmosphere. Because that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday in the casino of the Bundeswehr University in Neubiberg. President Merith Niehuss received the knighthood of the French National Order of Merit from the French Ambassador from Berlin, Anne-Marie Descôtes, for her commitment to this relationship. It is the fourth highest French order. It is rarely given to foreigners.
Bernhard Kolles drove the few meters to the meeting of the regional committee of the IHK at the wheel of a bus. The head of VBM Busreisen GmbH has little time. He has to go on soon to pick up a group at BMW World in Munich. But he wants to be there at least briefly when the entrepreneurs’ representation in the district of Munich talks about the topic that occupies many company owners like no other: the shortage of
The aid for the Ukraine in the district of Munich has many faces. Also very young: The two twin sisters Pia and Paula Mielich wanted something very special from their friends for their twelfth birthday – instead of gifts, small donations of money to help the people in Ukraine. The campaign raised a whopping 105 euros, which the two girls handed over to the Garching helpers’ group in a money box, much to the delight of the coordinators Nicola Gerhardt
At a birthday party recently. While everyone helps themselves to the generous buffet set up on the dining table, with salads, cakes and whipped cream, while the men fetch ice-cold beer from the rain barrel in the garden, a woman with colorful braids orders from her partner: “Hot water , You’re welcome.” Such austerity on this date? In her chic dress, she doesn’t exactly look like an inveterate vegan or any other nutritional ideologist. Curiosity is aroused and you end
Not only in state authorities and their canteens should more food from regional or ecological production be served, company catering can also become a large sales market for Bavarian producers. In order to promote regional products, Bavaria’s Minister of Agriculture Michaela Kaniber (CSU) gave the official starting signal for the “Heimatteller” campaign on Wednesday in the canteen of the Allianz insurance group in Unterföhring. Diners in their canteen should be able to identify dishes made from predominantly regional and ecological
Mowgli, the human child, the panther Bagheera, the bear Baloo and the sinister tiger Shir Khan – the characters from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” continue to inspire audiences to this day. On Sunday, May 22nd, the Landestheater Schwaben brings the story to the Unterhachinger Kubiz stage in an imaginative production. The performance, starting at 5 p.m., is suitable for children aged five and over. Tickets on 089/66 55 53 16 or via Reservix.
As innovative as Unterschleißheim likes to be, the city is lagging behind when it comes to street lighting technology. On some corners there are still wooden light poles, many of the poles are 50 and more years old. And little has happened with the switch to energy-saving LED lights that has been publicized nationwide for years. “I would be happy if we were further along,” admitted Mayor Christoph Böck (SPD) in the city council’s environmental committee. After all, the committee
For friends of classical jazz and sharp-tongued literature, a community in the south of Munich could become a place of longing at the weekend. At the 15th Oberhaching Jazz Festival, well-known artists spend two evenings extensively dedicating themselves to the Great American Songbook, the music of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, as well as the brilliant short stories of Dorothy Parker. Festival director and jazz pianist Bernd Lhotzky will present his new band on Friday, May 20th Because

Tobias Brunner and his wife Christiane Heyer are in high demand right now. They have made it their life’s work to help green hydrogen achieve a breakthrough as a clean energy source. And that is exactly the topic of the hour. Since Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, an entire country wants to get away from oil, gas and coal sooner rather than later. Hydrogen generated with the help of regenerative energy should play a central
When the violinist Ingolf Turban was first concertmaster of the Munich Philharmonic in the 1980s, the conductor Sergiu Celibidache is said to have underscored his appreciation with the following quip: “I’m Celi and you’re Turbi.” Well, Turban, who was born in Munich in 1964 and lives in the Stockdorf district of Gauting, left the orchestra again after a few years, became a busy and internationally recognized solo artist and later became a professor at various music schools. This Sunday, May
The temptation was too great for a 13-year-old schoolboy when he found a left-over briefcase with 14,900 euros at the Furth S-Bahn station on May 2nd. So he and his school friends set about wasting the money until parents noticed their children’s luxurious lifestyle and took them to the police. The injured party, a man from Sauerlach, got his money back.
According to the police, the teenager had told a friend about his coup, and in the end three boys
Water, heating, electricity: baths and saunas consume an enormous amount of resources. This is no different in the Phönix-Bad. As a major consumer, the Ottobrunn wellness oasis sees itself as having a special responsibility in view of the current energy crisis and has been reducing the room and pool water temperatures a bit since the beginning of the warm season. After all, even minor adjustments can save many kilowatts of heating energy.
The water temperatures in almost all pools are
