The Slovenski Primorec
weekly (1945-1948) was published in Gorizia by catholically oriented Slovenians of the Primorska region. The periodical reported on church issues across the world and at home, bringing news from their native land. It also had an open Window to the world. Even if it had only two to four pages, it addressed questions of principle with determination and courage. In that time, only priests who published the weekly could afford such an attitude. The periodical published mainly unsigned articles written mostly by priests but also laymen who have been under the microscope of the Yugoslav political authorities, as well as literary works, original poetry and essays about famous people of the Primorska region. In 1949, Katloški glas
) succeeded the weekly; in 1995 it merged with Novi list
) and the two of them were renamed into Novi glas
). The material has been digitized as part of the Digitisk-Digispomin project
, which was financially supported by the Friuli-Venezia Giulia autonomous region. The Digital Library of Slovenia, as digitization coordinator, welcomes such connection which goes beyond the borders of the Republic of Slovenia. This is a model of good cooperation.
After the World War I many newspapers that had ceased to be published during the war, were relaunched. Some of the magazines discussed lighter topics and were aimed to entertain, such as Vesna
(1921), illustrated cultural and fashion magazine, which was primarily intended for the then female population. The Roman
magazine (1929-1935) was more or less of trivial character. Turbulent political development after the war was ever-present. The socialist newsletter Zarja
/dawn/ published from 1922 to 1923 announced class struggle, as well as Ujedinjenje
/ unification/ (1920) with its with pro-Russian tendencies. On the front page of the newspaper there was the text "Marx and Engels: proletarians of all countries unite!" Also Socialist
(1923-1925), as can be seen from its title, defends the workers’ rights. The Slovenski republikanec
(1924-1925) was a journal of the Slovenian peasant people as well as weekly Sedanjost
(1921-1922) from Novo mesto stressing Christian values. Despite their diversity, all newspapers reflected Slovenian spirit and desire for a greater autonomy.
