Abstract

Der Übergang vom Deutschen Kaiserreich zur Weimarer Republik gehört zu den am besten erforschten Abschnitten der neueren deutschen Geschichte. Die süddeutsche Perspektive bietet hier keineswegs nur eine regionale Sichtweise. Vielmehr spiegeln sich in Baden die überregionalen Verhältnisse und Entwicklungen dieser entscheidenden Umbruchphase wider. Markus Schmidgall bietet auf der Basis einer breiten Quellenstudie ein facettenreiches Bild der Revolution 1918/19 in Baden.

Abstract

Il y a cent ans prenait fin la Première Guerre mondiale. Ses commémorations nous permettent de reconsidérer dans son ensemble et dans ses spécificités les formes de la mémoire du conflit. Mais peut-on parler d’une mémoire ? Il existe en réalité une pluralité de mémoires qui varient selon les origines familiale et sociale, mais qui restent largement nationale et hétérogène d’un pays à un autre. L’objet de cette publication est de cartographier l’évolution dans le temps, jusqu’à aujourd’hui, des mémoires de la Première Guerre mondiale en Europe, à travers les textes d’éminents historiens. Trop souvent négligée, la péninsule des Balkans est ici particulièrement étudiée à côté des grandes puissances traditionnelles européennes. Compte tenu de leurs histoires respectives, certains pays ont vu la mémoire de la Grande Guerre avoir une forte dynamique historiographique et mémorielle quand dans d’autres elle a été relayée au second plan par d’autres événements contemporains. Ces articles consacrés aux cas nationaux coexistent avec des études novatrices consacrées aux dimensions paneuropéennes et transnationales des mémoires, courants historiographiques émergents qui ouvrent une perspective différente.

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 book is a collection of essays by prominent historians from Austria, Germany, Ukraine, Poland and Russia, who undertook a thorough and detailed study of one as yet inadequately researched aspect of the First World War--the occupation of Ukraine by the Central Powers in 1918. The book provides a new and fresh perspective on the historical context of Ukraine’s struggle for independence following the First World War.

Consequently, this dissertation reveals that the social cohesion of the city has fundamentally changed during the first months of the war. Due to people’s various different notations concernig the right way of living and, particularly, the proper way of warfare, countless conflicts as well as cooperations arose in the city.

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.
