Newtown Historical Society Program: Causes of World War I

10/06/2014

25 Main St., Newtown, CT 06470. Phone: 203-426-4533.

NEWTOWN HISTORICAL SOCIETY EXAMINES CAUSES OF WORLD WAR I--One hundred years ago in June the Austro-Hungarian Empire's Archduke Ferdinand was shot and killed by a Serbian nationalist setting off WWI. Four years later the war ended with a loss of 10 million combatants and 7 million civilians. But the causes of WWI were much deeper than Ferdinand's murder, and the Newtown Historical Society will examine those causes as presented by Dr Robert Jacobs in a program titled Remembering WWI, 100 Years Later, on Monday, October 6, 7.30 PM, in the community room of the Booth Library, 25 Main Street (route 25). While the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was the catalyst allowing nations to bluster their way into war the real causes were complex. Empires centuries old were in competition with parvenu empires still on the make, and both were beset by nationalist feelings and revolts. France was still seething from the disastrous results of the Franco-Prussian War and wanted revenge as well as restoration of lost territory. All Newtown Historical Society programs are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.
