(Re)construire l’espace public germano-suisse. Le journal zurichois Die Tat entre 1945 et 1960

Abstract : After the Second World War German-speaking Swiss writers and journalists tried to revitalize the intellectual exchange between Switzerland and Germany. These transnational initiatives emanated from the civil society, not from official authorities. A Zurich-based newspaper, Die Tat, managed by Erwin Jaeckle, Swiss author and German scholar, took measures to bring the Swiss society closer to the realities in Germany. In 1949 it sent a correspondent to the new West-German capital Bonn in order to cover the political life in the FRG. This journalist, Fritz René Allemann, played a role as mediator between the societies in the two countries. Nevertheless, around 1960 his originally transnational concept turned into a simple bilateral view on two distinct national politics.
