75th birthday of the Lëtzebuerger Journal

Switch to German for original article

Our upcoming anniversary celebration is dedicated to our 75-year history and at the same time highlights the importance of the media for democracy. We place particular emphasis on highlighting the important role of the media in a democratic society and why it is vital that all people are properly represented in the media.

In this context, we will travel around the country in the coming weeks and months to present our work and discuss it with you. We will also publish several articles on the history of the Lëtzebuerger Journal as well as articles on the role of the media in Luxembourg and discuss, among other things, the future of journalism, and the use of artificial intelligence with experts.

The kick-off is on October 24 in Grevenmacher at the Kulturhuef. Here we will present the exhibition "De Lëtzebuerger Journal vu Print op Digital" for the first time. We are going back to our roots. The Lëtzebuerger Journal was created by the merger of the Obermosel-Zeitung, founded in Grevenmacher in 1881, and the magazine d'Unio'n, published by the resistance movement of the time between 1944 and 1948.

"A celebration of democracy, media and diversity."

With our anniversary celebration, we not only want to honor our history, but also highlight the importance of journalism for democracy and diversity in the media. By making the connection between democratic values and our role as a media, we create a platform for open dialogue and critical debate. We invite you to join our celebrations and to look forward together.
