As part of the doctoral students’ forum at the 54th German Historians’ Day, Alexander Schwarz gave a visual presentation of his research topic.

As a research associate at the University of Bayreuth and a doctoral student within the Conflicts.Meanings.Transitions network, he is conducting research on the topics of nationalism, anti-Semitism, and the Freikorps. His dissertation project examines the question why the (Franconian) Freikorps and government troops unleashed violence in Munich in May 1919, which has since been known as the “White Terror.”
