100 years since the end of the Great War (period of the WW1 in the Kadan region)

At the occasion of the 100 years anniversary of the WW1 end, the State District archives Chomutov in Kadan published some archivalia which document the period of the WW1 around Kadan:

1) collection of photograps since 1914 to 1918 from Kadan, that document both military and civic life in the garrison city (for more see www.soalitomerice.cz)

2) two „war“ chronicles (chronicle of village Strupcice and the school chronicle from the village Čachovice)

Our thanks belong to Mgr. Jiří Šlajsna from the Regional Museum in Most for a significant help with identification of the situations connected with the military life, determination of the military ranks and so on.
Not all the pictures were localised (e.g. placing of the work unit camp), which is why we will very appreciate any help with gaining more information e-mail: balasova@soalitomerice.cz
