Mapping wartime Jewish diaries and their postwar trajectories

Mapping wartime Jewish diaries and their postwar trajectories

If Auschwitz has become the key symbol of the Holocaust, then the fate of Anne Frank and her family has become symbolic of Jewish wartime experiences in Nazi-occupied Europe, and Anne’s diaries of Jewish diary writing. As such they are constitutive of people’s ideas about the Holocaust and the Jewish experience during World War II. Indeed, the Anne Frank diaries are intrinsic to the development of postwar Holocaust memory.

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) Lessons from the past, future prospects

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) Lessons from the past, future prospects

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) was established on 25 July 1921. Some years later, in 1935, three additional sections were added to the BLEU Convention: on financial and monetary matters, a common trade regime and a “special revenue community” with specific excise duties. In 1963, the provisions of the BLEU were revised following the entry into force of the European Economic Community (EEC) and Benelux.

Le genre et l'Europe: Quo Vadis?

Le genre et l'Europe: Quo Vadis?

L'égalité des genres est un principe fondateur de l'Union européenne (UE) inscrit dans les traités
et constamment réaffirmé (Protocole social annexé au Traité de Maastricht, Traité d'Amsterdam, Charte sociale européenne, Charte européenne des droits fondamentaux). Même si des progrès notables restent à accomplir, l’Europe démocratique constitue une source d’inspiration en matière de l'égalité entre les sexes et le développement des sociétés plus ouvertes et modernes.

NATIONAL FORGETTING AND MEMORY: THE DESTRUCTION OF "NATIONAL" MONUMENTS FROM A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE

NATIONAL FORGETTING AND MEMORY: THE DESTRUCTION OF "NATIONAL" MONUMENTS FROM A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE

The Fall of Monuments: a Public History Monuments have, for a few years now, been hitting the headlines all over the world. Public debates do not focus so much on the erection of new monuments as they do on acts of vandalism, removal, and destruction. If destructions of monuments are not new – for example during the French Revolution – their multiple examples all around the world (United States, England, Australia, Spain, Argentina, South Africa for instance) raise questions about their origins, meanings, and consequences.

Digital history and the politics of digitization

This paper addresses the question of the politics of (cultural heritage) digitisation and its consequences for historical research. To put it simply, it discusses the question of why, where and how we can access what we can access. The online documentary record affects historical research and we need to understand how and in what ways our online evidentiary basis is constituted and might affect our research.

Peripheries at the Centre. Borderland Schooling in Interwar Europe.

Peripheries at the Centre. Borderland Schooling in Interwar Europe.

Following the Treaty of Versailles, European nation-states were faced with the challenge of instilling national loyalty in their new borderlands, in which fellow citizens often differed dramatically from one another along religious, linguistic, cultural, or ethnic lines. Peripheries at the Centre compares the experiences of schooling in Upper Silesia in Poland and Eupen, Sankt Vith, and Malmedy in Belgium — border regions detached from the German Empire after the First World War.
