Well known liberal German newspaper, published in Berlin 1721–1934. Its full name was: Vossische Zeitung: Berlinische Zeitung von Staats- und gelehrten Sachen [Voss Newspaper: Berlin Newspaper for Matters of State and Learning].

Its predecessor was founded in 1704. Among the editors of the "Aunt Voss" were Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Willibald Alexis, Theodor Fontane and Kurt Tucholsky. Until the second year of the Third Reich (1934), it was generally regarded as the German national newspaper of record, comparable to The Times in England and Le Monde in France. It was then closed by the National Socialists and replaced by the party organ, the Völkischer Beobachter [People's Observer]. With the end of World War II, the latter closed, and newspapers in Germany have generally been locally-based since then.
