Film – The story of Walter Flex

June 18th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized

The film narrates the story of Walter Flex, war volunteer right from the start of the First World War and one of the best-known writers it produced. Important documents of his literary remains, which are kept in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, have now been digitised and are freely accessible in the digital culture portal ‘Europeana’. The film looks behind the scenes of the digitisation centre of the Staatsbibliothek and reveals how his letters, manuscripts, photos and personal documents, among them a map with a bullet hole, were put online by the Staatsbibliothek. The film was produced in a co-operation between the projects Europeana Collections 1914-1918 and Europeana Newspapers.

The film is available also with subtitles in German, French and Italian language.
