Hi,

Reading another thread which mentioned Alan Bennett (http://forum.pons.eu/de/forum-deutsch-englisch/suche-deutsche-%C3%9Cbersetzung/tie-n-die-t10805.html), it struck me that he is considered by many in Britain to be a “national treasure”.

i.e. "an artefact, institution, or public figure regarded as being emblematic of a nation’s cultural heritage or identity: national treasure Dame Judi was nominated in the best actress category"

http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/national%2Btreasure?q=national+treasure

And I wondered if there was a similar/equivalent German term? And, also, who Germans think of as their national treasures?

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Hi@all,

There seem to be various different categories of what can be defined as a "German national treasure"

- present-day or historical, people or works of art:

Hi Laura77,

I actually meant people, as per DaveP’s suggestions.

I guess Germans just don’t think about people in this way...

Hi to all,

I would like to add another nice link here - as to what could be included among Germany's national treasures:

Beer has been nominated as a candidate ;)
