Harald Martenstein: About a recently deceased columnists colleague, the social and style critic Hermann L. Gremliza
A few years ago, ZEITmagazin produced an issue about columnists, which were also photographed, nicely draped as a group in front of a fireplace. I remember Harry Rowohlt was at the photo shoot and an old gentleman who had been with him for about 50 years kicker kolumnierte. Hermann L. Gremliza was also invited to fill a page in the ultra-left monthly magazine, also since time immemorial concrete, His media column was called express, Gremliza had answered the ZEITmagazin inquiry with a snappy rejection. This request was proof of liberalism reaching to the limits of masochism. Few press organs were reviled by this author as persistently as, in his view, reactionary ZEIT.
