In the talk by Inna Ganschow, the camp experience in the Soviet Union will be treated as a consequence of the forced conscription, namely in its artistic processing. Secretly written diaries and letters of Luxembourg Wehrmacht soldiers or poems of deceased comrades learned by them by heart, they also reached their homeland. The camp literature, which has its roots in the prison and prisoner of war literature, has a dimension of the documentary speaking about the Luxembourger conscripts in the Soviet detention 1943-1953, which as a text genre does not always fall under the term "literature" meaning "fiction". Ego documents, as contemporary history researchers call them today, represent private, handwritten texts of a personal nature. The range of texts to be examined in the presentation ranges from the smuggled out notes and letters that their released comrades took with them to Luxembourg the diaries, speeches and self-made dictionaries to poetry, short stories and drawings, some of which were created in the camp and some immediately after returning from Tambov and other camps in the Soviet Union. Going through these few valuable pieces of paper from 1943 to 1946 and collecting them as a catalog of the genres, the presentation will show, how the biographies and the methods used by the writers of the texts managed to capture or to record the camp life. The question that is in the foreground is the examination of the thesis of the Auschwitz concentration camp survivor Viktor Frankl, a psychiatrist and neurologist from Vienna, that giving meaning to life in the camp - logotherapy - can have a self-healing effect and increase the chances of survival. The written texts of the Luxemburgers in the Soviet camps in Russia as well as in East Germany or Poland are considered with this possible intention in mind that the writing helped to give meaning to the life, suffering and destiny of their authors. The focus of the talk lies on leitmotifs, images and topoi, which the authors use, consciously or unconsciously, to find the necessary spiritual support and (re)gain the feeling of being in control of their own lives.

While TV-interviews are recorded for an already written documentary film script, interviews for the Ukrainian oral history archive of war testimonies are recorded without any expectations. When creating our archive, we do not know what research question of linguists, philosophers or historians will be later. We know that the archive is not going public, that´s the deal. But how does one study interviews in the archives, if there are not 10 interviews, but 100? And what if there are 1000 of them? Where do you get enough time to listen? This is where artificial intelligence comes to the rescue, technologies for “distanced reading”, “text mining” and “natural language processing”. The talk focuses on the technologies which are helping to get an overview over the interview collecting by indexing, keywording and transcription. [less ▲]

During the war, the steel industry in Esch played an important strategic role for the Germans. To ensure and increase production, unskilled additional labour was needed. Thus, the German occupiers resorted to the occupied peoples of Soviet Union and Poland, who were transported to Luxembourg to work in the steel mills and mines. The first so called Ostarbeiter entered Luxembourg during October 1942 and were placed in different barracks called Ostarbeiterlager. Most of these barracks were located in the south of Luxembourg, close to the iron and steel industries. One of those camps was situated close to what is today the Ramerish roundabout. In Esch, they worked in the ironworks. Although the inhabitants were forbidden to communicate with the Ostarbeiters, some inhabitants gave them food or clothing to compensate for the lack of food and the poor living conditions. In return the Ostarbeiters were crafting wooden dynamic toys for Luxembourgish children. [less ▲]

Inna Ganschow untersucht in ihrem Vortrag die verschiedenen Typen totaler Institutionen im Sinne Erving Goffmans auf dem Weg von ZwangsarbeiterInnen aus der Sowjetunion nach Luxemburg und zurück. Von den nationalsozialistischen Durchgangs- und Kriegsgefangenenlagern über die luxemburgischen Werk- und Ostarbeiterlager bis hin zu den sowjetischen Sammel- und Filterlagern endete die lange Reise nach Hause oft nach einigen Monaten oder Jahren erneut in einem Lager oder einer Zwangsansiedlung. Die Repatriierung junger ukrainischer, weißrussischer und russischer Frauen wird anhand von erhaltenen Dokumenten aus erster Hand, verschiedenen Lager- und Betriebsunterlagen sowie Augenzeugenberichten rekonstruiert. Die Rückführung wird im Hinblick auf ihre Funktion analysiert, die eine Bestrafung, eine Belohnung oder ein Schutz sein konnte. [less ▲]

Wars never happen ‘just like that’ or ‘out of the blue’. They are the culmination of complex processes that span years and sometimes even decades. In his art, Maxim Kantor has addressed the threat embodied by the apparently seamless transition from Soviet Union to the Russian Federation and guided democracy, and his position has always been unmistakeable: Vladimir Putin and the system that produced him are, and always were, dangerous. Now more than ever, choosing the right words matters, and speaking them in situations where we would rather be silent endows the statements we make with a renewed and uncomfortable sense of moral and political weight. Understanding the circumstances that led to the Russian invasion of Ukraine requires a thoughtful engagement with historical narratives and the perspectives they present. Words are central to this process. As we choose what to say and what not to say, we contribute to the discourses that will shape the political order of tomorrow. The discussion will be centred around a selection of paintings by Maxim Kantor, each illustrating or addressing themes or aspects of the current war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine and its impacts on human rights in Eastern Europe and beyond. Students will prepare and present discussion questions. [less ▲]

Die Angst unter den Geflüchteten, dass sie an Menschen- oder Organhändler geraten könnten, ist groß. Diese Gerüchte hätten sich schnell verbreitet. Daher sei in den Lagern an der polnisch-ukrainischen Grenze auch Überzeugungsarbeit notwendig. Den Geflüchteten werde erklärt, was sie in Deutschland erwartet. "Da ist so viel Vertrauen gefragt", sagt Inna Ganschow. Die Russin ist mit dem Verein MMS Humanitas an die polnisch-ukrainische Grenze gefahren, um Flüchtlinge nach Deutschland zu bringen. Trotz all der traumatischen Erlebnisse glaubten die Geflüchteten aber noch immer an das Gute im Menschen.

D’Historikerin Inna Ganschow, déi an der Sowjetunioun gebuer ass, elo hei am Land lieft an op der Uni schafft, huet erkläert, datt vill Leit a Russland net wéissten, datt Krich wär. Mediekonsum decidéiert iwwer Meenung. Alternativ Medie wären ofgeschalt ginn. Déi russesch Gesellschaft wär och passiv ginn a géif sech fir d’Konflikter net méi wierklech interesséieren. An an der russescher Sprooch géif een den Ament de Krich net "Krich" nennen, mä just eng "Militäroperatioun". Aktuell riskéiert een, wann ee vun engem "Krich" schwätzt och bis zu 15 Joer Prisong a Russland. Eng klassesch Oppositioun, wéi mir se hei kennen, wär schwiereg.

The lecture by Inna Ganschow in the framework of LuxTime Machine is about two years in the history of the Minette region, from 1942 to 1944. The reconstruction focuses on the life in the camp of the female forced labourers who had been deported from the Soviet Union for slave labor in the steel industry of Luxembourg. "The big data of the past" as much as the so called ego-docments like letters, photos and memories after the liberation allow to get to the bottom of the daily life of thousands of the Soviet teenagers, who lived directly at the plant in the barracks behind the barbed wire, were subjected to an enormous workload and had neither enough food nor free time.

The article describes the difficulties of returning from Soviet captivity of the Luxembourgers who were drafted into the German Wehrmacht. On concrete examples, it is shown what was the path even of those young people into the German army who actively resisted the invaders and participated in the General Strike of 1942. The article also provides an overview of the possibilities in Soviet captivity for building survival mechanisms (learning the language, participating in the theater, writing poetry, songs and creating paintings). Based on ego documents, as well as on diplomatic correspondence between the Grand Duchy and the USSR, it is explained why the Luxembourgers were able to return to their homeland only in the fall of 1945, despite the fact that Luxembourg was already free from the fall of 1944.
