"You start first, Fritz" – is the opening gambit to a conversation among friends. In the summer of 2009, Helmut Schmidt and Fritz Stern got together and talked about issues close to their hearts The topics covered a wide spectrum: from Bismarck to Israel, the Second World War to the rise of China, the Bush era to excessive bonuses for bankers - and there was no shortage of anecdotes. In an interview with Matthias Naß (DIE ZEIT), two wise old men take another stroll through the 20th Century and our world today.

In cooperation with the ZEIT, the Verlag C.H. Beck and Schleichers Buchhandlung
