The widest range of historical and cinema images for editorial and creative use
Suddeutsche Zeitung

Süddeutsche Zeitung, which began publication in October 1945, was the first newspaper to receive a licence from the post-war US administration of Bavaria and is now the largest German national daily newspaper with a readership of over 1 million.

The content of their remarkable archive includes images of two world wars, the Berlin Wall and life in East Germany and fantastic portrait photography of stars such as Elvis, Gloria Swanson and Alfred Hitchcock.

In addition to the images available online, several million images are available to our researchers who can check the rest of the SZ collection on your behalf.
