On Friday, 16 January, the Ministry of Finance of Bavaria banned the republication of the National Socialist newspaper, which was made in the historic project "Newspapers as witnesses."

The editor of the newspapers as the witnesses "Paveronshits Sandra (Sandra Paweronschitz) said that it was ready for such a decision of the authorities. Revision knew about all the legal intricacies involved with the project and that the "deal with Munich would be difficult, especially when it comes to publishing Eera.

Publications, print runs of about 300 thousand copies, must be equipped with modern historians' commentaries.
