Zwischen Begeisterung und Angst - wie Deutsche den Kriegsbeginn erlebten
Der Buchladen - Meyer & Mohr, Saturday, August 30 at 7pm
Tillmann Bendikowski liest aus Sommer 1914

Gemeinhin dominiert noch immer die Vorstellung, es habe im Vorfeld und zu Beginn des Ersten Weltkrieges eine allgemeine Kriegsbegeisterung gegeben, kulminierend im sogenannten August-Erlebnis, das die Deutschen den Kriegsbeginn in nahezu religiöser Ergriffenheit sehnlichst erwarten ließ.

Inzwischen ist die These von einer einheitlichen Gefühlslage der Nation überholt. In Wirklichkeit war diese weitaus komplexer, wiedesprüchlicher, vielfältiger. Hurra-Patriotismus gab es im Sommer 1914 ebenso wie Protest, Euphorie ebenso wie Nachdenklichkeit und Angst.

Tillmann Bendikowski lässt fünf Zeitzegen aus unterschiedlichen Schichten und Millieus sprechen: Kaiser Wilhelm II., einen frankophilen Historiker und Professor, einen jungen Aktivisten der Arbeiterbewegung, eine protestantische Lehrerin und einen deutsch-elsässischen Lyriker. Mit Ausnahme von Wilhelm haben sie Tagebücher geführt, ihre Aufzeichnungen erlauben uns einen weitgehend ungefilterten Einblick in ihre Erwartungen, Hoffnungen, Gefühle und vor allem den Wandel derselben- in den fünf Monaten von Juni bis Oktober 1914, vom Attentat in Sarajewo bis zum Beginn des Massensterbens an der Westfront.
