DVD “Heimat/Front. Lienz and the War 1914–1918“
Removed from mass events on diverse occasions, the emphasis lies on everyday life at the Front and on the „Home Front“ with the help of pictures, many of which have never been shown before. The significance of religion is striking, as can be observed here. The initial euphoria quickly gives way to shock and disillusionment. Hardship, suffering, and death are constant companions – even the propaganda cannot cope with that. The armed encounter ends in chaos, the collapse of the Danube Monarchy, the painful loss of South Tyrol.
