Temeschburg H.O.G. Website

The German-language press was also represented during the interwar period in Romania by a large number of newspapers, journals, and other periodicals. Among the most important periodicals were the cultural journal Ostland (Hermannstadt, 1919-1921 and 1926-1931) and the literary journal Klingsor (Kronstadt, 1924-1939). Among the leading German-language newspapers were the daily Kronstä dter Zeitung, established in 1849 (Kronstadt, 1849-1944); the leading Transylvanian Saxon Conservative Daily, Siebenbü rgisch-Deutsche Tageblatt, established in 1874 (Hermannstadt, 1874-1944); Banater Deutsche Zeitung (Temesvár); and another Temesvár daily, Tageszeitung.6 With the rise of the National-Socialist movement, the two great papers Siebenbü rgisch-Deutsche Tageblatt and Banater Deutsche Zeitung were merged to form Sü dostdeutsche Tageszeitung (1941-1944). A cultural-affairs monthly, Volk im Osten, similar to Klingsor, began appearing in this period as well.
