Today the new season “Dunja Hayali” starts – on a prominent slot and with the topic “Corona in the German nursing industry” as well as a farewell interview with the boss of Siemens.


The long-standing Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser will step down at the beginning of next year. He has just had the shareholders approve a drastic restructuring of the company. He takes stock of “Dunja Hayali” and talks to Kaeser, among other things, about how the economy can recover after the corona lockdown.

The pandemic will also determine the rest of the season’s kick-off show: a majority of the people who died in Germany with or with Covid-19 lived in care facilities. The corona crisis hit old people particularly hard. The risk of infection is not only particularly high for people in need of care, the nursing staff also lives and works in constant fear of infection. At the beginning of the corona pandemic, the “heroes of everyday life” were still celebrated everywhere. But what happened to the applause? How can your work be improved sustainably?

Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU), nursing specialist Branka Ivanisevic, the managing director of the social holding of the city of Mönchengladbach, Helmut Wallrafen from North Rhine-Westphalia, and TV presenter Andrea Kaiser, whose father lives in a care facility and fell ill with Covid-19, will discuss this.

The other four episodes of the new season of the talk magazine, which is themed “Heart, Attitude, Hayali”, will be broadcast live on the upcoming Thursday at 10:15 p.m. on the ZDF program.
