Ulk. Illustriertes Wochenblatt für Humor und Satire – digitized

(http://ulk.uni-hd.de/)

Cover UlkThe digitization of Ulk (volumes 1914-1930) at the University Library of Heidelberg was supported by the Landesarchivdirektion Baden-Württemberg.

The satirical magazine , a North German counterpart of the South German magazine Fliegende Blätter, was published from 1872 to 1933 as a free supplement of the Berliner Tageblatt published by Rudolf Mosse (1843-1920). From September 1910 to November 1930 Ulk became as well a supplement to the Berliner Volks-Zeitung, but was available separately, too.

From 1918 to 1920 Kurt Tucholsky contributed to Ulk as an editor in chief, thus acquiring large readership because of the quarter million newspaper readers. He wanted to restore the good reputation of the jewish-democratic Ulk by eliminating jokes about World War I and exhortations to hold out. After Tucholsky had left , the editor Joseph Wiener-Braunberg returned to the earlier editorial policy.
