|First issue||1 January 2010|
Zuerst! was founded in January 2010 as a successor to now defunct Nation & Europa magazine. It was supported by right-wing publishers in Germany. The publisher of the magazine was Lesen und Schenken. At that time the distributor of the magazine was Bauer media group which also owned it later. In September 2012, the group sold Zuerst! due to criticism by Der Spiegel.
Political leaning and controversy
Zuerst reported its political leaning and policy as follows: "The German news magazine ZUERST! will serve German - not foreign - interests." Immediately after its first issue the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution announced that the content of the magazine was against the "unending de-nazification efforts", advocating revisionist theories on national boundaries, and the terrorist activities of the "South Tirolean Freedom Fighters" in the 1960s.
