In Daimler’s online magazine, we want to talk about the people behind this company. Our focus is on three points: Firstly, we want to deal with topics that are relevant for society, relevant in terms of technology or relevant in terms of our strategy. Secondly, we want to show the many faces that Daimler is made of. And thirdly, we want to explain what this company does – and why it does so. You could even go as far and say: If our website with its daily news is something like a Daimler newspaper – then the Daimler Magazine is our weekend supplement.

    Quo vadis Autoland?

    For decades, the state of Baden-Württemberg and the Stuttgart region in particular have been regarded as something of an automotive wonderland. It’s the place where the automobile was invented, and the automotive industry continues to be the basis of the region’s jobs and prosperity.

    9 November 1989 marks the fall of the Berlin Wall, the symbol of division of Germany. On that night, people from the East and West celebrated together. Yet many citizens of East Germany had no idea how profoundly the fall of the Wall would turn their lives upside down. People like Detlef Ludwig, Thanh Nguyen Manh and Torsten Schulz.
