The Hannoversche Landeszeitung (HL) was a newspaper closely related to the German-Hanoverian Party (DHP) , which emerged from the Deutsche Volkszeitung (1866) (according to an overview of Hannoversche daily newspapers in the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Library, exactly from March 1, 1921 to May 2 1930). Like these, the HL appeared at times as a daily, but also as a weekly newspaper. From March 1932 it was printed in the Culemannsche printing and publishing house .
From April 17, 1932, the HL appeared as a pure daily newspaper, namely as the head page of the Berlin Daily Rundschau , which belonged to the Christian Social People's Service . At the beginning of 1933 the circulation of the HL was around 2,000 copies.
Until the Enabling Act was passed on March 23, 1933, HL occasionally expressed cautious criticism of the party and the government. Because of an article against the "Action against the undeutsche Geist" ( book burning ) by the German student body , the Hannoversche Landeszeitung was banned from publication from May 4 to 31, 1933.
From January 1, 1934, the HL appeared again as a weekly newspaper. It was last published on May 30, 1941.
