    “Aufbrüche in das 20. Jahrhundert: Sozialismus, Kemalismus, Faschismus"

    On first sight one hardly finds a historical relationship between Soviet socialism, Kemalism in Turkey and Fascism in Italy. Social, economic, political, and religious preconditions seem far more to separate them from each other than to correlate them. But their common historical starting point (and – by the way – the same age-group of the leaders and the reception of each other) serves as an invitation for comparison. All three regimes had their roots in the perception of crises in the late 19th century; they came into being as a result of World War I and civil or liberation wars that followed; they intended to form new states, new institutions and new consolidated societies and characterised themselves as fundamental new beginnings; they fought against what their elites perceived as the rotten past and its foul representatives, be it individuals, social groups, or symbols (but they used history to mystify their own historical role and meaning); their self-commitment as modernizers entailed violent processes of change in order to get rid of what was considered as outlived; they developed personality cults and new elites. The project does not equalise but relate the regimes to each other in order to analyse in a comparative way what fundamentally shaped societies and experiences in the 20th century.
