    After over 3 years it's time to put this baby to bed!

    The 'Schwabischer Beobachter' was a German language newspaper printed in Petrovgrad, Serbia from 1934 and throughout the war. I can find no trace of it today.

    During the 30's and 'til the end of the war, the population was nearly 30% German speaking, other ethnic groups being Hungarian and Serbian amongst a few others. Today there are non listed as German speaking. The Germans invaded the region in 1941 and systematically destroyed the synagogues and deported the Jews to the death camps.

    Here's a linky thing to the city and area the paper covered.

    I don't know how you got your hands on this Rene, but I have noticed that bound yearly copies of the 'Schwabischer Beobachter' crop up on Australian e-bay on a regular basis....Strange!

    Hope this helps, Ned.

    As far as known the "Schwäbischer Beobachter" may not have existed after July 1942. There is no evidence
    for later publishing!

    This newspaper was published in the south of Germany (part of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria) at Memmingen from
    the Dr. und Verl.-Genossenschaft "Allgäuer Beobachter", so in the south-west area (from this newspaper there is
    a signboard in my book about enameled shields on page 413).
    It was not printed as where big ned says: The 'Schwabischer Beobachter' was a German language newspaper
    printed in Petrovgrad, Serbia from 1934 and throughout the war.

    In this area (Schwaben) also existed and still do exist the "Schwäbisches Tageblatt" (at Tübingen and Reutlingen)
    and the "Schwäbischer Zeitung" (Friedrichshafen - Ravensburg). I thought the area is also known as "Allgäu".
