At the Andrić Institute in Andrićgrad has been presented the 16th issue of “Historical Notebooks” in which are published historical sources from the period of the First World War.
The central theme of this issue is a paper “Diplomatic sources in Vienna 1874 – 1914”, prepared by the director of the Archives of Serbia, Miroslav Perišić.
Promoting a new issue, historian Borivoje Milošević says that in historical notebooks, starting from this issue will be published reports of legation, of the Principality and later Kingdom of Serbia, from 1874 until the outbreak of the First World War.
“These documents are extremely important contribution for understanding of the Serbo-Austro-Hungarian relations in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that have experienced a very turbulent transformation in this period, from friendly to extremely strained relations during the First World War,” says Milošević, who is a professor at the Faculty of Philosophy in Banja Luka.
He says that documents that will be published are representing a kind of pre-history of the First World War.
In this issue is published and sequel of the paper from the previous issue “London` Tajms` on Serbia in 1915”, in which is described withdrawal of the Serbian army, assemblies, governments and a large number of civilians, and the texts were edited and translated from English by Maša Miloradović.
“Article “Serbian volunteers in the Russian revoluciji” is about about life the Serbian Volunteer Corps members in Russia in 1918,” says Milošević and adds that it was a very interesting period of time, because that was the time of the revolution in Russia.
Readers will be, in the article “The First World War from the perspective of Serbian artist”, informed about the lesser-known life story of Serbian women artists and writers.
In the next 17th issue of “Historical Notebooks” will be published personal research by a professor, Borivoje Milošević, about how Gavrilo Princip was presented in the American press during the First World War.
