Development of the number of copies sold


The Neue Deister-Zeitung was first published on July 1, 1875 by Johann Christoph Erhardt.

Like other German hometown newspapers , the Neue Deister-Zeitung was closely linked to the city's dignitaries, which secured the newspaper the status of an official district paper of the newly founded Springe district since 1885.

The newspaper began appearing twice a week in 1875, increased the frequency to three in 1885, reached four times in 1932, and finally did not come out daily (except Sundays) until 1962.

The National Socialism meant for the newspaper Deister New rapid growth. The circulation rose from 3,000 copies in 1934 to 4,000 copies in 1939. Unlike many others, the newspaper was not banned from publishing and had to close in 1943 for reasons related to the war. After the freedom of the press was granted, the newspaper appeared again in 1949.
