From Alias Nation to the Berlin Republic

Michael Naumann is the first German Minister of Culture since that post abolished in 1933 and renamed Minister of Propaganda and People's Enlightenment under Joseph Goebbels.

Naumann spoke recently with NPQ editor Nathan Gardels at Villa Aurora in Pacific Palisades, Calif. where the German novelist Thomas Mann spent the Nazi years in exile.
