The following information on the First World War prisoners is on show at the Exhibition Kriegsgeschichte-n curated by the ARE/Artistic Research Encounters in Berlin. The exhibition has been organized with the friendly support of the Lautarchiv of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Exhibition duration 8. Februar- 23. April, 2014. The materials on the Georgian prisoners presented on the blog and in the exhibition are on public show for the first time after the WWI since they were classified as secret data. We're very thankful to HU Lautarchiv for cooperation and to Dr. Britta Lange for letting us know about the existence of these data and for providing us with the necessary information and materials.
