“The Annals of Braila” is one of the most important regional cultural journals published in the interwar period, due to the cultural phenomenon of regionalism. This was the response of Romanian intellectuals to the exaggerated influence of the West in all areas, that is the emergence of what Titu Maiorescu called forms without substance. As a result, immediately after the Great Union of 1918, young people, mostly students, who already exposed their ideas in scientific societies, began to organize information-gathering activities in all domains in certain areas and then they published them as scientific texts. That is how regional culture journals appeared in Craiova, Brasov, Timisoara and Constanta. Curiously, all have been mentioned in history books of press or in dictionaries except “The Annals of Braila”. A careful examination shows that the journal was probably not only a refuge, as the Braila journal was as important as the other. And in order to support this we should mention: it appeared for 12 years despite the financial difficulties, while others were released for a smaller period of time, it had as collaborators important people of the Romanian culture and literature, and its studies concerned the entire area of the Lower Danube, the analyzes, documents, information having considered other cities that are on the Danube shores. Therefore, we believe that the “Annals of Braila” journal must stand alongside the other regional culture journals and enjoy the same importance.
