The centenary of Tageblatt

On 26 of June Tageblatt celebrated its centenary during the prestigious ceremony at the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.

 «Hundred years, that’s long in the history of nations, especially when the history is eventful. Hundred years in the life of a newspaper, that’s significant, because it means it fought to stay. For what century as the Tageblatt! » — exclaimed yesterday Danièle Fonck, the director and editor of the Tageblatt.

 The story, she says, began on 30 of June 1913, when a liberal Diekirch entrepreneur named Paul Schroell created his newspaper — the Tageblatt of Escher.
