A Satirical Weekly is Reborn

Heidenheimer, Arnold J.
December 1954
New Republic;12/27/54, Vol. 131 Issue 26, p20
This article reports that the great German satirical weekly the Simplicissimus, is back in business. In its periods of glory the Simpl had been a great force in German letters. The final disaster for Simplicissimus came with Adolf Hitler's accession to power in 1933. Several of the artist-owners who had become dependent on the magazine for good incomes, had for some time moderated their political attitudes. The first few issues show no clear political or literary policy, nor do they show immediate promise of genius.
