Editor's Notes

  1. Children in Cetinje (Montenegro) selling devaluated money to Austrian soldiers as a souvenir.
  2. What would you expect from an Archive to do? Of course to publish a book... We called it „Papierkrieg“ (Paperwar)
  3. Then we thought: One book is not enough! So we did an inventory about all Ego Documents (i.e. Memoirs, Diaries, War Letters from people who were involved in the war. They represant people like the Chief of the general Staff Conrad von Hötzendorf, Leopold Count Berchtold, the Foreign minister in 1914 and the simple soldiers who were serving in the army
  4. The trench because of the War exhibition in Vienna 1916 were the public could also visit a trench. The crosses with the pictures remind on a publication called „The fields of honor“ which should consist of all dead soldiers of the monarchy. After the deat toll has risen so high that no one could follow any more the publication was cancelled.
  5. A ballon in Wolhynia
  6. Karl von Schneller (1878-1942) member of the Field Command.
