The emergence of new countries in Eastern Europe after the First World War: Lessons for all of Europe

A new report and exhibition from a project led by WiseEuropa revisits the developments in Eastern Europe in 1918 and their relevance for Europe today.

March 20, 2019 - New Eastern Europe - History and Memory

The year 1918 was a key point in European history, also from the perspective of Eastern Europe. After the Bolshevik Revolution, the dissolution of tsarist Russia and the conclusion of the First World War, many new countries were created. Independence was acquired by Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Unfortunately, some other states, after a declaration of independence in 1918 (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine), were destroyed by the Bolsheviks in 1920-1921. The entire process has had a significant impact on the future of Europe and its awareness is crucial to building a shared future.

A new report based on an exhibition prepared by WiseEuropa, a Warsaw-based think tank, illustrates these lessons through specific cases.

A PDF of the report can be downloaded here.
