  • Almanach der Neuen Jugend
    Only ons issue was published of Der Almanach der Neuen Jugend auf das Jahr 1917. Edited by Wieland Herzfelde, Heinz Barger and published by Verlag Neue Jugend, Berlin. The Almanach is dated 1917 but actually published in late 1916. Herzfelde had compiled the Almanach as an anthology of works by his usual contributors (Martin Buber, Annette Kolb, Johannes R. Becher, Theodor Däubler, Arthur Rimbaud, Richard Huelsenbeck, Walt Whitman, Mynona, L. Frank, A. Ehrenstein, Else Lasker-Schüler, Franz Werfel, Wieland Herzfelde, Heinrich Mann, George Trakl, Franz Kafka and others); its pacifist tone was to be much more open than in the regular numbers of the journal. But Herzfelde was recalled to the war front in October, and Barger took this opportunity to make substantial changes in the Almanach, watering down its political content.
