Culture & History Digital Journal

Published by Institute of History of the CCHS (CSIC), Culture & History Digital Journal features original scientific articles and review articles, aimed to contribute to the methodological debate among historians and other scholars specialized in the fields of Human and Social Sciences, at an international level.

Using an interdisciplinary and transversal approach, this Journal poses a renovation of the studies on the past, relating them and dialoguing with the present, breaking the traditional forms of thinking based on chronology, diachronic analysis, and the classical facts and forms of thinking based exclusively on textual and documental analysis. By doing so, this Journal aims to promote not only new subjects of History, but also new forms of addressing its knowledge.

Topics concerning new historical trends and perspectives are of special interest.

Feelings and Emotions / Global History / Urban Culture / Unwanted Heritages / Images of the World / Nations and Cultures / Psychoanalysis and Culture / Travels and Travelers.

World War II - Prisoners of War - Stalag Luft I

Begun as a tribute to their father Dick Williams Jr., a prisoner of war in the WWII German prison camp Stalag Luft I, this website has become a comprehensive record of what life was like at the prison camp.  Some of the many links on the website include POW’s stories, photos, poetry, art, roommates, newspaper, and account of the evacuation.  There are also links on the guards and interrogators at the Stalag Luft I.  Visitors interested in verse will surely want to browse the Poetry section, which has dozens of poems and quotes taken from the diaries of WWII prisoners of war, as well as a song composed by a member of the kriegie (prisoner of war) orchestra, called “Low is the Sun”.  Visitors should also be sure to check out the Newspaper link, which is about the paper called the POW WOW, Prisoners of War - Waiting on Winning.  The paper had a circulation of thousands and traveled to as many as seven camps.  Visitors can appreciate how lucky they are to be able to read the six issues known to be in existence, as the newspaper was meant to be destroyed immediately after reading. Interestingly, there was even a newspaper parodying POW WOW, called BOW WOW, which can be found below the issues of POW WOW.  Overall it is a fascinating site filled with a trove of primary resources and information about the WWII POW experience.
