The Goethe-Institut is organising a number of events and project worldwide to mark the centary of World War I. Recognising historical events and learning from them is an important aspect of the work of the Goethe- Institut.

This website provides an insight to the WWI era by featuring extracts from literature, music and film from that time. It will also provide information about the events being organised by the Goethe-Institut as part of this commemoration.

Essays, images and interviews from the era illustrate paradoxes of war and are relevant to the issues we face today.
