bleisaetze's insight:
You thought WWI was a"silent war" - just pictures and films but no audio? Listen to 4 hours speeches, sound pictures and music (of course mainly patriotic, occasionally slightly ironic) instead! German scrutiny helped preserve these documents. A scary experience....

»Dieses ewige ›bessere Technik bedeutet Fortschritt‹, ›mehr Hightech bedeutet besseren Krieg‹. Was soll das heißen: besserer Krieg, saubereres Töten? Die Möglichkeit, andere zu töten, während man die eigenen Truppen schützt? Was wird das dann für ein Krieg sein?« 

—Jody Williams, Friedensnobelpreisträgerin

bleisaetze's insight:

Something about war and technology.

They call it 'scrolleytelling' �� - and it's based on a radio documentary from Deutschlandfunk.

Le Boyau - Dans les tranchées 1914-1918

Le Boyau - Dans les tranchées 1914-1918 | WW-I | Scoop.it

Que fut le quotidien des soldats dans les tranchées de 14-18 ? La boue, la vermine, les pluies d'obus, la promiscuité, mais aussi le "rata", le tabac, la belote à l'arrière ou le plaisir -rarissime-de se raser. ....

 
bleisaetze's insight:

A really extraordinary piece in both sounds and sights! Note: the "video" ia animated just by wobbling  binocular, stereoscopic pictures from WWI.

Sir Edward Grey's speech on the eve of war: 3 August 1914

Sir Edward Grey's speech on the eve of war: 3 August 1914 | WW-I | Scoop.it

The speech made in the British House of Commons by Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey on 3 August 1914, that inspired Parliament to commit the nation to war in Continental Europe.

bleisaetze's insight:
However, this speech does not contain the famous quote "The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime." Apparently thist was said in a private conversation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_lamps_are_going_out)
