The exhibition "After the Great War. A New Europe 1918-1923" will be on view in Weimar from 1 to 19 November. A guided tour by the curator Dr Bartosz Dziewanowski-Stefańczyk will be held on 3 November at 16:00 as a part of the Weimarer Rendez Vous mit der Geschichte festival.

The First World War completely changed East-Central Europe. Upon the ruins of four old empires, a dozen or so new countries appeared and almost all borders were redrawn, often in course of continued military conflicts, which lasted even until 1923. After having suffered very high losses, the region started rebuilding and modernising efforts. A New Europe was established.

The new outdoor travelling exhibition created by the ENRS focuses on these turbulent years. Over 200 archive and multimedia materials – pictures, maps and films together with individual stories of people who lived back in these times – present a complex yet coherent picture of New Europe established in Central-East part of the continent after the Great War.

Weimar will be the 6th location, after Prague, Sarajevo, Bratislava, Verdun and Berlin, to host the travelling exhibition. The display will be on view at at the Stéphane-Hessel Square in front of the Bauhaus Museum till 19 November, and in other European the following year.

A special guided tour of the exhibition will take place on 3 November at 16:00. The tour will be given by the exhibition's curator, Dr Bartosz Dziewanowski-Stefańczyk. The event is organised as a part of the Weimarer Rendez Vous mit der Geschichte festival.
