l’image comme « preuve ». La projection de films de la libération des camps nazis pendant les

Secondary school principals and liminality in Polish Upper Silesia (1919-1939)

Secondary school principals and liminality in Polish Upper Silesia (1919-1939)

Establishing and implementing rules that would teach young people to become active citizens became a crucial technique for turning those spots on the map of Europe whose sovereignty had shifted after World War I into lived social spaces. This article analyses how principals of borderland secondary schools negotiated transformation in Polish Upper Silesia with the help of Arnold Van Gennep’s notion that a shift in social statuses possessed a spatiality and temporality of its own.

Keen ass vergiess - Näischt gëtt vergiess

Keen ass vergiess - Näischt gëtt vergiess

The authors tell from the lives of three married couples. The men and one of the women immigrated to Luxembourg from Russia via Germany and France at the beginning of the 20th century, the other two wives came from Luxembourg or the border area. The married couple Aronow-Herz, Fakorowitsch-Levy and Lukmanski-Lubinstein and their children tell stories of migration and integration, of constraints and freedom, of plans and setbacks. And then the story of the unthinkable: the Shoah.

History in the Era of Massive Data

History in the Era of Massive Data

Abstract This article draws on the experience of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) research project, ``\#ww1 the centenary of the Great War on Twitter,'' to contemplate what it means to use born-digital and big data primary sources, both as a methodology and as a contribution to the field of memory studies and contemporary history more broadly. It discusses the notion of distant reading in order to show the interest of multiscale reading in the framework of big data.
