Neuerscheinung in unserem Verlag: Heft 4/2021 der Zeitschrift für Ostmitteleuropa-Forschung

Soeben ist Heft 4/2021, Bd. 70, der Zeitschrift für Ostmitteleuropa-Forschung / Journal of East Central European Studies erschienen. Es handelt sich um das von Małgorzata Popiołek-Roßkamp und Annika Wienert betreute Themenheft „Designing the New East. Architecture, Spatial, and Urban Planning in Poland under German Occupation, 1939–1945“.

Aus der Einleitung:

The scope of this topic links the history of architecture to economic and political, as well as ideological aspects of National Socialism, and also entangles it with the persecution and exploitation of the Polish civilian population as well as the Holocaust. Consequently, the contributions in this volume reveal the architects and town planners (independently of their conscious intentions) as conveyers of National Socialist ideology and as important actors in the colonization of the East. This topic also transcends the Nazi period when one considers the pronounced continuities which inhere in the theory and practice of the architectural profession in general and especially in the uninterruptedness of most of the protagonists’ careers. This applies to post-war Germany and Poland—with little research having been conducted so far on the Polish architects. Ultimately, this is a complex topic with far-reaching connections to research questions that lie outside the history of architecture. Against this backdrop, for a comprehensive analysis of the complex roles which architecture, town planning, and spatial planning played in the conquest of the East, we most assuredly need to combine research approaches from various disciplines.“
