The multimedia project 14 – Tagebücher des Ersten Weltkrieg [14 – Diaries of the First World War] brings together diaries of German and French soldiers and civilians to tell the story of the First World War through their eyes. Some of the diaries were written by children. A television series based on 14 diaries and produced by several European networks will be launched on April 29, 2014, both in Germany (Das Erste) and France (ARTE). On the website recordings of texts from these diaries made for radio broadcasts will be added. To illustrate to the series in which stories are played by actors rare (colour) photographs will be used, too. The German website has a French companion website, 14 – Des armes et des mots [14 – Weapons and words].
