Since 1968, the German-Maltese Circle published a printed monthly Newsletter.  This publication carried amongst other things, news on forthcoming events, contributions by members and articles of interest especially connected with Germany, its people and customs.  With the advent of internet, the so-called social networks and increase in costs, this Newsletter stopped being published in 2013.

One very popular feature which used to appeal to many readers of the German-Maltese Circle’s Newsletter was the monthly Interview with a member of the Circle.  These interviews – compiled and edited by Frau Ingrid Kidder – were published between 2003 and 2008.
