Exhibition: The Alsatians, Peace on the Rhine?

©Historial franco-allemand de la Grande Guerre

At the end of the First World War, the whole of Europe was deeply shaken. This exhibition offers a comparative approach to these transformations in Alsace, Baden and north-western Switzerland between 1918 and 1923.

One hundred years ago, the Treaty of Versailles marked the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France. This led to profound changes in the Upper Rhine. For the Alsatians, who have been under German rule since 1870, the rupture is sometimes experienced in a brutal way. It is to this particular period in the history of Alsace that the Dominicans of Guebwiller and the archives of the Departmental Council of the Haut-Rhin have devoted an immersive digital animation. Entitled "1918-1925: The Alsatians, Peace on the Rhine", this animation will be presented at the Historial franco-allemand at the beginning of the 2020 season.
