Verlag “Die neue Weltbuehne”
Hermann Budzislawski founded the Verlag Die Neue Weltbuehne in Prague in 1934. They published an eponymous journal as the successor of the weekly journal Die Weltbuehne. Budzislawski had been the editor-in-chief of Die Weltbuehne before Edith Jacobsohn sold him the company and he renamed it. They published 5000 to 6000 copies per issue.
In 1938 the company relocated to Paris where they published the first issue in June 1938. In August 1939 the journal was forbidden. Many of the articles were politicaly motivated and the journal was aligned with the communist party. This closeness however, did not stop the authors from criticizing Stalin.
After the publishing house was shut down Budzislawski was arrested but inadvertently set free. He took advantage of the situation and fled to New York via Lisbon in October 1940.
Die Weltbuehne was originally founded by Siegfried Jacobsohn in 1905/1918. After his early death in 1926 his wife Edith managed the Verlag der Weltbuehne Siegfried Jacobsohn & Co. At that time the editors-in-chief were Kurt Tucholsky and Carl von Ossietzky.
