AUSZRA was published
during the period of 1883-1886. Though called by its editors a newspaper, in fact
it was a monthly magazine due to appear on the 20th day of each month.
The first five issues (No. 1-5, 1883) were printed in Ragaine, and the
subsequent issues, beginning with 1883 No.6 up to the end in 1886,
were printed in Tilze. AUSZRA made a decisive impact upon Lithuanian
national Renaissance. The newspaper evoked national consciousness,
rallied Lithuanian intellectuals and formed the programme of their
activities on national issues. AUSZRA aimed to become an intellectual
centre that could consolidate the Lithuanian national movement.
