The Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher, or German-French Annals was created in response to the censorship and destruction of the Collection:Rheinische Zeitung, which had caused a serious split in the Young Hegelians. Most drifted further away in detached theorizing, devoid of immediate political action or aims. Marx and Arnold Ruge refused to take that path and teamed up to create the Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher.

The paper was first planned to be based in Strasbourg, but ultimately was published in Paris, in August 1843. Paris was the centre of socialist thought and political thought, the home of the revolutions of 1789 and 1830.

The newspaper printed only one issue, in February, 1844. Publication was ended as a result of the difficulty of secretly distributing the paper (due to censorship) into Germany from France, and as a result of a disagreement between Marx and Ruge.
