Text Description
Simplicissimus was a satirical weekly magazine published between 1896 and 1967. The magazine took a strong stand against extremists during the Weimar period, until 1933 when Jewish employees and the liberal editor-in-chief Franz Schoenberner were ousted by National Socialists. Contributors included writers Thomas Mann, Herman Hesse, Rainer Maria Rilke, and artists George Grosz and Käthe Kollwitz.
