BERLIN (AFP) - German poet, playwright and scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe has been voted the greatest German of all time in a new poll, beating runners-up chancellor Konrad Adenauer and physicist Albert Einstein. The author of The Sorrows of Young Werther and Faust, who died in 1832, received the most votes in a poll of 2,000 people for the daily Bild newspaper, said the Forsa institute which conducted the survey. The only living people to receive votes were the countrys longest-serving leader Helmut Kohl (from 1982 to 1998), in fifth place, and ex-Social Democrat leader Helmut Schmidt (from 1974 to 1982) in seventh. Adenauer was West Germanys first chancellor after World War II, 1949-63.
