Search Websites by Keywords

The keyword search in the collection of websites allows users to look for websites on the subject of gender, military and war that provide access to Online collections of primary sources, educational resources and Online encyclopedia. The collection primarily includes websites provided by public institutions like archives, bibliographies, foundations, libraries, museums, research institutions or universities. The focus of the collection is on the wars of the twentieth century, especially the First and Second World War, because for them much more websites are available. Most of the included websites are in English, French or German.

Users can search for these websites by using one or a combination of two and more, keyword for their search. They can search for major wars, time periods, regions or countries. In addition, a thematic keyword search is possible, which is based on a selection of broad terms defined by the editors of the Oxford Handbook of Gender, War and the Western World since 1600 edited by Karen Hagemann, Stefan Dudink, and Sonya O. Rose (Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2020). They represent some of its central themes and questions.

European Film Gateway 1914 Deutsches Filminstitut

Since February 2013, the European Film Gateway gives access to around 3,000 historic films related to the First World War. European film archives contributing to the European Film Gateway digitised considerable parts of their WWI collections in the scope of the EU-funded project EFG1914. In time for the centenary of World War One in 2014, all films digitised in the project were searchable through the European Film Gateway. The films cover different genres like newsreels, documentaries, fiction and propaganda and have to be considered of special importance since only around 20% of the complete silent film production survived in the film heritage institutions. Therefore, the films searchable through the European Film Gateway constitute a crucial part of these remaining moving image records. Moreover, EFG1914 also gives access to anti-war films that were mainly produced after 1918 and which reflect the tragedies of the 1910s.
