A newspaper founded in 1907 by the Left wing of the Social-Democratic Labour Party of Holland. In 1909, after
the expulsion of the Leftists, who formed the Social-Democratic Party of Holland, the paper became the official
organ of this party; in 1918 it became the organ of the Dutch Communist Party, and appeared under this name
German workers' newspaper published in Leipzig from January 1868 to September 1869; it was edited by
Wilhelm Liebkencht. The paper palyed an important part in creating the German Social-Democratic Workers'
Party. In 1869, at the Eisenach Congress, it was made the central organ of the party and became known as
Volksstaat. Marx and Engels were among its contributors.
The Deutsch-Franz\u00f6sische Jahrb\u00fccher was created in response to the censorship and destruction of the
Rheinische Zeitung, which had caused a serious split in the Young Hegelians. Most drifted further away in
detached theorizing, devoid of immediate political action or aims. Marx and Arnold Ruge refused to take that
path and teamed up to create the Deutsch-Franz\u00f6sische Jahrb\u00fccher.
The paper was first planned to be based in Strasbourg, but ultimately was published in Paris, in August 1843.
Paris was the centre of socialist thought and political thought, the home of the revolutions of 1789 and 1830.
The newspaper printed only one issue, in February, 1844. Publication was ended as a result of the difficulty of
secretly distributing the paper (due to censorship) into Germany from France, and as a result of a disagreement
between Marx and Ruge.
