The story of Central Europe is anything but simple. As the region located between East and West, it has always been endowed with a rich variety of migrants, and has repeatedly been the scene of nomadic invasions, mixed settlements and military conquests. It has witnessed a profusion of languages, religions, nationalities and cultural transformations. The most important waves of modern settlement have been Germanic and Slavic, but Central Europe also became a great haven for Europe's Jews. In recent history, it was subjected to both Fascism and Communism in succession. The ordeal lasted for fifty years, and the damage to life and liberty was incalculable. In order to present a portrait of Central Europe, Norman Davies and Roger Moorhouse have made a case study of one of its most colourful cities, the former German Breslau, which became the Polish Wroclaw after the Second World War.The traditional capital of the province of Silesia rose to prominence a thousand years ago as a trading centre and bishopric in Piast Poland. In due course it became the second city of the kingdom of Bohemia, a major municipality of the Habsburg lands, and then a Residenzstadt of the kingdom of Prussia. The third largest city of nineteenth-century Germany, its population reached one million before the bitter siege by the Soviet Army in 1945 wrought almost total destruction. Since then Wroclaw has risen from the ruins of war and is once again a thriving regional centre.The history of Silesia' s main city is more than a fascinating tale in its own right. It embodies all the experiences which have made Central Europe what it is -a rich mixture of nationalities and cultures; the scene of German settlement and of the reflux of the Slavs; a Jewish presence of exceptional distinction; a turbulent succession of imperial rulers; and the shattering exposure to both Nazis and Stalinists. In short, it is a Central European MICROCOSM.… (mais)

Téhle knize nelze mnoho vytknou a taky se to vlastně ani nedá příliš čekat. Precizní zpracování je u podobných publikací dosti samozřejmé. Autoři se při zpracování tak nebývale širokého tématu pochopitelně nevyhnou sem tam určitým faktickým nepřesnostem, ale to jsou jen drobnosti, které by mohl vyčítat pouze hnidopich. Podstatná je velmi poctivá snaha pokud možno nestranně zachytit a popsat, co se ve městě v tom kterém období opravdu dělo a jak tyto události jeho obyvatelé prožívali. Cenná jsou bezprostřední svědectví. Trochu zamrzí (minimálně v českém vydání) malý počet vyobrazení a dobových i současných fotografií města. Jinak velmi slušný překlad Petrušky Šustrové pak kazí její dosti nepochopitelné rozhodnutí překládat názvy měst z polštiny do češtiny, přestože v anglickém originále jsou důsledně a vědomě ponechávána ve tvaru ve své době používaném... I to jsou ovšem jen drobnosti ve srovnání s tím, o jak objevnou knihu se jedná... Celkový dojem: 90% ( )

Wrotizila, Wrestslaw, Presslaw, Breslau, Wroclaw...andere namen voor een zelfde stad. Een stad met een bijzonder rijke, veelkleurige, bij tijd en wijle beklemmende geschiedenis. De historie van deze stad leest als een geschiedenis van ( midden) Europa. Polen, Oostenrijkers, Bohemers en Duitsers spelen een belangrijke rol in het verhaal.Het poltieke, sociale, religieuze en culturele leven in Wroclaw door de eeuwen heen worden op een gedetailleerde manier door de auteurs beschreven.

Microcosm is geen gemakkelijke maar wel een intrigerende en beklijvende historische studie, die mij heel wat bijbracht. Bijzondr is bijvoorbeeld de waanzinnige geschiedenis van de Oekraiens- pools- Duitse migratie in de eerste jaren na de tweede wereldoorlog. Bij ons weinig bekend, waren honderdduizenden bij deze verplichte volksverhuizingen betrokken.

Tijdens een bezoek aan de stad ervaarde ik hoe dit alles nog enorm leeft en de wonden van het verleden nog lang niet geheeld zijn. Dit boek was voor mij belangrijk om de achtergronden ervan te begrijpen. ( )
