Informationen zum Buch

Experiences of war and violence are engraved in historical memory for generations, influencing individual as well as collective attitudes in different conflicts.
Starting with World War I, the contributions in this volume examine such complex interrelationships using concrete examples, such as the presentation of soldiers and veterans in modern German art, the theatre of Brecht and Heiner Müller as well as representations of war in film and literature. The authors focus on the perception and cultural processing of war and violence and reveal astonishing examples of their aftereffects in the period from 1914 to the present.
