Marion Grafin Donhoff

Background

Dönhoff was born in East Prussia in 1909 into the old aristocratic ('Junker') Dönhoff family at Schloss Friedrichstein (now in the Gurkyevsky District of the Russian oblast of Kaliningrad).

Career

In 1946, Dönhoff joined the fledgling, Hamburg-based magazine Die Zeit as political editor, and to the time of her death on 11 March 2002, aged 92, Dönhoff was still co-publisher of the influential paper.

While being known as left-liberal in its cultural and literature coverage, the paper adopted a fundamentalist pro-American line in other matters, arguing heavily for the division of Germany, for West-German rearmament and the foundation of a new, big West-German army.

Intelligence connection

A payroll list from the German Foreign Intelligence Service BND from 1970, names 230 top journalists including Marion Countess Dönhoff (alias 'Dorothea') from the die Zeit.[1]
