If Deutsche Bank goes bankrupt, the German gov't certainly is able to finance the debt of German corporations, who depend on funding by Deutsche Bank. If every foreign creditor of the bank gets bailed out, is not an issue for Germany. The loss in jobs and tax collection by losing much of the German financial sector is as well not too big.
