Soldiers and their communities in WWII: The impact and legacy of war experiences in Luxembourg – at C2DH, University of Luxembourg
More than 10,000 Luxembourgish soldiers and recruits and an unknown number of Luxembourgish men and women wore German uniforms during WWII in armed forces and civil organizations, such as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, armed police forces and the Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD). Who were these people? What was the reason for their commitment to the occupation forces? How did their families cope with the situation?
Being excited about the launch of the new project about Luxembourgish soldiers and (forced)recruited in RAD and Wehrmacht and working together with Prof. Dr. Denis Scuto and Michel R. Pauly as PhD candidate.
