Verdeckte deutsch-niederländische Rüstungsproduktion und die Firma IvS 1922-1945
Author: S.J. de Groot
1922 wurde das Ingenieurbüro für Schiffbau (IvS/ Inkavos A.G.) unter der Leitung von Dr. Hans Techel in Den Haag gegründet. Auf diesem Wege sollten durch eine geheime Kooperation mit den Niederlanden die technische Erfahrung und der Technologievorsprung des Deutschen Reiches im U-Bootbau erhalten bleiben – obwohl der Versailler Vertrag dem Deutschen Reich die U-Bootrüstung untersagte.
Kurz nach seiner Gründung bezog das IvS seine Büros im selben Gebäude wie die Schiffbauliche Abteilung der niederländischen Marine. Hieraus ergab sich eine enge Zusammenarbeit in der U-Boot-Konstruktion. So im Bereich des Rumpfdesigns, der Torpedoausstoßvorrichtungen und der Torpedos, Sehrohre, Echolote, Schallortungsgeräte und des Schweißens von hochfestem Stahl. Die Ergebnisse der Kooperation beeinflussten sowohl die U-Booteigenbauten der Niederländischen Marine wie jene des IvS für seine ausländischen Kunden. Gegenüber diesen erfüllten beide Parteien ihre vertraglichen Verpflichtungen zwischen 1922 und 1940. 1945 übernahm die niederländische Regierung das IVS. Es wurde erst 1957 geschlossen.
The Portrayal of Destruction and Mass Violence
Editors: Frank Jacob and Mor Presiado
The present volume provides a critical insight into the relationship of art and war. It shows how artists perceive war and how they depict it, to warn the spectator but to cure their own trauma at the same time.
War causes destruction, loss, and trauma. Many artists have used their art to express feelings and memories related to these losses and their own traumatic experiences. The artwork that came into existence due to such processes reflects on events of our past, but should be considered a warning at the same time. To deal with human suffering means to fully engage with the artist remains of human war experiences. The present volume aims to provide a first critical insight into the relationship between art and war, showing how artists dealt with human losses, destruction, and personal trauma.
Treatment and Reintegration of Soldiers in Post War Societies
Editors: Stefan Karner and Frank Jacob
War creates veterans and societies are reminded by their existence that violent conflicts had been waged in the past. Even when the wars have been long forgotten by many, veterans are the ones whose fate has been tied to war and destruction.
Societies often struggle with their veterans, especially when they have to address the former soldiers’ traumatic experiences and acknowledge the wounds that hurt beyond the body. While veterans are often a steady reminder of violent conflicts of the past, they are often ignored by their societies, once peace is achieved. Nevertheless, veterans play an important role in postwar contexts as well and their role, their possible influence and impact in the supposedly non-violent world need to be addressed. The present volume discusses the role of veterans in the aftermath of war and shows how they had been treated by and how societies tried to reintegrate them in narratives of the past.
