Fantastic idea: the German weekly paper Die Zeit has set up a blog for congratulating Helmut Schmidt to his 90th birthday on December 23. Helmut Schmidt is the former German chancellor (1974-1982) and has since been editor of Die Zeit. He is one of the most respected German politicians still alive. He is one of the architects of modern post-war Germany, of a closer European Union and of a common currency, the Euro.
For more details on Helmut Schmidt see the English Wikipedia entry.
Go to the birthday blog and give your wishes.
