Das Lager Elsenborn im Versailler Vertrag

Das Lager Elsenborn im Versailler Vertrag

Am 28. Juni 1919 hatten die Siegermächte und die deutschen Bevollmächtigten im Spiegelsaal des Schlosses von Versailles den Friedensvertrag unterzeichnet. Das Ende des Ersten Weltkrieges wurde damit besiegelt und am 10. Januar 1920 trat der Versailler Vertrag in Kraft. Damit wurde Belgien um 1.050 km² größer, auch wenn die belgischen Ansprüche weitaus weiter – bis ins Rheinland – reichten. Weniger bekannt ist, dass das Militärlager Elsenborn bei diesen Verhandlungen eine nicht unwesentliche Rolle spielte.

Minett-Stories : A Transmedia Storytelling Project

Minett-Stories : A Transmedia Storytelling Project

The Minett is a region in southern Luxembourg that has been strongly influenced by its industrial past: by the mining of "minette" iron ore and by iron and steel production. Our virtual exhibition, Minett Stories, investigates the multiple – and sometimes contested – histories and identities of the region, as well as those of the people who lived and worked there.

Presenter: Teaching History in Luxembourgish Secondary Schools in the 1950s-1970s: Ideas and Experiments

‘We don’t like over-emphasised patriotism; our national experience is simply more reserved than that of our larger neighbours. Since we do not feel as the significant part in big developments, such as is the case of for example France and Germany, we are forced from the outset to a certain modesty’, Fanny Beck-Mathekowitsch wrote in the pedagogical student thesis she submitted in order to receive a Luxembourg teacher’s accreditation in 1952.

Women, Gender and Computing

Women, Gender and Computing

The book "Women, Gender and Computing (from the 1940s to today)" analyses how the role of women in computing has evolved in the US and Europe. It studies how this field became more and more a masculine domain. This anthology is structured in three parts. The first one focused on (In)Visibility through time, highlighting women's important role in the early years of computing. It enlightens the evolution of their role, first as human computers or punch cards operators, until the strong professionalization of the sector, and showcases their invisibility through time.
