“Central and Eastern Europe after the First World War” is an impressive book that resulted from the conference held at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Berlin (January 31 – February 2, 2018). Edited by Burkhard Olschowsky, Piotr Juszkiewicz, and Jan Rydel, this book incorporates 25 articles signed by 26 contributors from eight countries.

The Institute of European Network Remembrance and Solidarity (Warsaw) and the Federal Institute for Culture and History of the Germans in Eastern Europe (Oldenburg) are the main supporters of this book published to commemorate the moments that defined the (re)construction of Central and Eastern Europe, in the aftermath of the Great War.

The book sets the foundation for historians to broaden their research agenda for what the first interwar decade was for Europe’s political, economic, and social evolution in the twentieth century. The contribution of so many authors from numerous countries provides this volume with a special value in the recent historiography of the last century.
