Time has named German Chancellor Angela Merkel its 'Person of the Year'. The New York-based news magazine praised her leadership on a range of issues, including her handling of the refugee crisis and helping keep Greece in the Eurozone.
The anti-harassment movement has been given the title by Time magazine. The US publication called attention to the pervasive nature of sexual assault and the difficulty most victims face in getting justice.
There are millions of photos of Germany's chancellor, but the portraits by artists Colin Davidson and Elizabeth Peyton, created for magazine profiles in Time and Vogue, reflect the chancellor's international image.
In an exclusive DW interview, Merkel's challenger criticized her campaign motto and lack of leadership. He was also highly critical of Turkish President Erdogan, saying he would not be blackmailed on refugee policy.
The leaders of Germany's two biggest parties went head to head on TV for the only time ahead of the September 24 vote. Merkel and Schulz sparred on topics ranging from migration to foreign policy.
