MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research is to identify the key interests, themes and fears related to ethnic German minorities in the former Yugoslavia between World War I and World War II. The research analyzes hundreds of editions of Deutsche Zeitung, a German-language newspaper printed in Yugoslavia from 1926 to 1937. The newspaper acts as a window through which one can gain insights into the experiences of a group of people who, in the aftermath of the First World War, found themselves to be a new minority in a newly-formed country. In order to understand the experiences of this new minority, this research tracks the format, language and recurring themes of the newspaper as its print run spanned a very politically turbulent period that slowly marched Southeastern Europe to war and ethnic cleansing.
