Carlos Widmann

Carlos Widmann was born in 1938 in Buenos Aires. He spent his student years in Munich, where he soon became a news editor at the Süddeutsche Zeitung. He was that paper’s foreign correspondent in Rio de Janeiro, New Delhi, Rome and Washington from 1965 to 1991, then became an international columnist and roving reporter for Der Spiegel in Paris. He visited Cuba regularly – and met with Castro even in Chile and in the Bronx. Widmann’s work earned him the Egon Erwin Kisch Prize (1986) and the Theodor Wolff Award (1987), to name but two.
