Die Woche ([dɪ ˈvɔxə], "The Week") was an illustrated weekly newspaper published in Berlin from 1899 to 1944. It reported on popular entertainment, including "sensationalist crime stories", and covered celebrities in sports and show business. Its publisher was newspaper magnate August Scherl, who also owned the Berliner Lokal-Anzeiger, a Berlin paper.
By 1916 Scherl had been bought up by the (politically conservative) Hugenberg Press, and came to play a part in the politics of the day, specifically in promoting an image of Paul von Hindenburg as both a military man and a civilian, thus aiding his appeal across the German population.
