The end of the First World War in 1918 led to peace negotiations, which were held in the suburbs of Paris in the period of 1919-1920. One result of these negotiations was the treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye with Austria, which was signed on September 10, 1919. This event was also reflected in the contemporary newspapers. The focus of this thesis is the Viennese press media's portrayal of the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1919. Four selected newspapers were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively from the handover of the treaty (2 September 1919) until its ratification (October 25, 1919). The thesis is characterized by a theoretical part, which deals with the newspaper as a historical source, displays a methodical presentation of content analysis by Klaus Merten and deals with the historical context, focusing on the First World War and its consequences, as well as the peace negotiations and the final peace terms for Austria.
