The First World War as a "Break" in the European History of the Twentieth Century

Seminar, DHI London

Seminar by Lucian Hölscher (Bochum). The First World War was more than a turning point; it was a break in European history which prompted a reorientation of biographies, political and social systems, and, above all, mental structures in almost all academic disciplines. Starting from biographical sketches from the time of the war, the seminar will demonstrate the confusion and reorientation of concepts of time and history during and after the war in Germany.
