Abstract

Was bedeutete ‚Weltrevolution’ und ‚internationale Solidarität’ für einfache Parteiaktivisten und die sowjetische Bevölkerung? Das Buch präsentiert erstmals eine Gesellschaftsgeschichte des frühsowjetischen revolutionären Internationalismus. Auf Basis neuerschlossener Quellen untersucht es die Vermittlung internationalistischer Ideen sowie die Bedeutungen, die frühsowjetische Aktivisten und Bürger in sie hineininterpretierten. Auch das sich wandelnde Repertoire an Praktiken, die der Parteibasis zur Verfügung standen, um an revolutionären Ereignissen im Ausland teilzuhaben, wird einer Detailanalyse unterzogen. Die Studie eröffnet einen neuen Blick auf die Gesellschaft im ersten sowjetischen Jahrzehnt, ihre transnationalen Verflechtungen, und ihre Transformation hin zum Frühstalinismus.

Abstract

Up to the 1980s prisoners of war were hardly even mentioned in military history. Only in recent years have scientists acknowledged the importance of this topic. For their investigations some of them chose the First World War, especially the Eastern front, where more than 5 million soldiers were captured until the revolutionary events of 1917/18. Contrary to the few existing studies, the present publication concentrates more on the evaluation of captivity in the historical background rather than on the description of "POW-fates" in "the hands of their enemies". It therefore focuses on the meaning of captivity and repatriation during the Russian Revolution and the establishment of the Communist International. Based on documents of the central archives in Vienna and Moscow, the thesis comes to the following results: On the one hand, conflicts between the soldiers of the Central Powers in the former Tsarist empire, in particular between the Austro-Hungarian nationalities, for example between the "Bolshevik internationalists" and the "Czech Legion", played a decisive role in the beginning of an Eastern European "period of confusion" which can hardly be entitled a "Russian Civil War". On the other hand, former prisoners functioned as founders of the Comintern and leaders of the first communist parties outside Soviet Russia. The activities of POWs thus marked the starting point of the international cadrerecruitment for the Comintern, which became a significant aspect in the foreign politics of the "first proletarian republic" and consequently in the so called "short 20th century" defined by the existance of the USSR and its "satellite states".

Abstract

This publication documents the life and work of the architect Rolf Geyling (1884-1952), who was a former student of Otto Wagner and started his career in Vienna and Bucharest before the First World War broke out. During the war Geyling documented his experiences as an officer of the Habsburger Monarchy with photographs and a detailed diary, which he continued during his imprisonment in Siberia. After five years in several camps - most recently in Vladivostok - Geyling fled to Tianjin in China, where he successfully established himself as an architect until the period of Mao Tse-tung and was particularly involved in the development of modern architecture in northern China.
