« Un grand dégénéré physique et mental ». Étude du parcours de vie de Maxence C. dans la Belgique du XXe siècle

Cette contribution emprunte les outils de la microhistoire et de l’histoire par le bas pour interroger l’expérience d’un individu confronté aux institutions de prise en charge des personnes vulnérables et à la marge dans la Belgique du XXème siècle.

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Originally from Vienna, Austria, the Thuna family escaped to Luxembourg following the Anschluss of Austria to the German Reich in 1938. During their two-year stay in Luxembourg, they were supported by the Jewish ESRA Committee and resided in the Hotel Select. Despite efforts to obtain entry visas for countries in South America, they remained in Luxembourg until the invasion of German troops in May 1940, from where they embarked on a disrupted transport to Lisbon in November 1940, which eventually took them to France. In 1942, Hans Thuna was deported to Auschwitz via Drancy.

Que faire des « indésirables » ? Étude comparative de la dépossession des familles considérées comme juives et des familles déplacées de force au Luxembourg (1940-1944)

Que faire des « indésirables » ? Étude comparative de la dépossession des familles considérées comme juives et des familles déplacées de force au Luxembourg (1940-1944)

This article centres on a comparison of the persecution and dispossession of Jews and forcibly resettled Luxembourgish families, referred to as Abgesiedelte, during the Second World War in Luxembourg. It investigates how the German occupation authorities used the confiscation of property from these groups to foster a sense of allegiance to the German “people’s community” (Volksgemeinschaft) within the territory.

Étude comparée de l’organisation des services postaux dans le sillon de Sambre et Meuse en 1789 et 1801. Approche géographique et historique de deux documents cartographiques

Étude comparée de l’organisation des services postaux dans le sillon de Sambre et Meuse en 1789 et 1801. Approche géographique et historique de deux documents cartographiques

La période d’occupation française des territoires qui composent l’actuelle Belgique est souvent associée à un bref intermède entre le régime autrichien et le régime hollandais, débouchant sur l’Indépendance belge de 1830. Pourtant, durant la courte période allant de 1795 à 1815 s’est déroulé le plus grand et le plus radical chamboulement de l’histoire de ces régions. Chamboulement culturel, économique, et, non des moindres, administratif. À ce niveau, le nouveau découpage du territoire est sans doute l’élément le plus flagrant.

Le temps des plateformes : enjeux, différences et complémentarité de l’archivage des médias sociaux numériques à la Bibliothèque nationale de France et à l’Institut national de l’audiovisuel

Le temps des plateformes : enjeux, différences et complémentarité de l’archivage des médias sociaux numériques à la Bibliothèque nationale de France et à l’Institut national de l’audiovisuel

Inégalement préservés, les RSN entrent dans les enjeux d’archivage du web de manière plus ou moins précoce. La Bibliothèque nationale de France [BnF] a archivé Dailymotion entre 2007 et 2013, Twitter depuis 2012 et YouTube à partir de 2017. L’Institut national de l’audiovisuel [Ina] archive YouTube et Vimeo depuis 2009-2010 et Twitter depuis 2014. Si toutes les plateformes ne bénéficient pas encore d’une activité de captures régulières, de nouveaux projets de collecte améliorent la couverture. Ainsi la BnF gère des collectes Instagram depuis 2020 et TikTok depuis 2022.
