Add a space inbetween: " e. – Johannes_B Mar 27 at 15:18
Never use " for quotes, but always double back quote and '' – egreg Mar 27 at 15:19
@Johannes_B Didn't help, the result is the same as before – Manuel Fuchs Mar 27 at 15:19
@egreg thank you, this solved my problem – Manuel Fuchs Mar 27 at 15:20
Even better would be the use of package csquotes: \enquote{MARA}. – Johannes_B Mar 27 at 15:21

Never use " for quotes. In particular, if you use babel-german, where " is a shorthand character.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

\begin{document}

DAMN'' ebenfalls

,,Damn ebenfalls

"Damn"' ebenfalls

"<Damn"> ebenfalls

\end{document}
`
