Abstract

The chapter "Conquered Territories and Entangles Histories" in the edited volume  War Memories: The Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars in Modern European Culture. explores the perception of Franco-German and German-Polish Borderlands in German Travelogues published between 1792 and 1820. Bernhard Struck's  study of travel accounts shows that travelers in Germany under the Napoleonic Empire did not report a great deal of animosity between Germans and the French, despite the formation in later generations of a collective memory that presented the Napoleonic period as the moment in which German nationalism awoke in reaction to French occupation and influence. More distance they demonstrated against the Poles.
