Sprachexperte Josef Klein zur Rede Richard von Weizsäckers am 8. Mai - SPIEGEL ONLINE
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Herr Klein, der ehemalige Bundespräsident Richard von Weizsäcker ist gestorben. Jetzt wird immer wieder eines gewürdigt: seine Rede zum 40. Jahrestag des Kriegsendes. Zu Recht? Klein: Völlig zu Recht. Diese Rede war die beste seines Lebens. Niemand zuvor hat so auf den Punkt gebracht, was die meisten Deutschen über den 8. Mai 1945 dachten und fühlten. Zudem kenne ich keine Rede, die so viel ehrliche Empathie für unterschiedliche Gruppen enthält - für die Opfer des Holocaust, aber auch für das Leid der Frauen, für die deutschen Soldaten und für die Heimatvertriebenen. Diese Rede ist nicht nur Rhetorik, sie ist auch menschlich und historisch einzigartig.
