www00_400As I explained in my editorial for the new thematic issue of the Ovi magazine, “I had always the feeling that the reason we commemorate more often the Second World War than the First, is not because it is more recent or because there are still alive memories; it is because we feel consciously more comfortable. Despite the inhuman crimes the lines between good and evil in WWII are discreet and visual.”

And later I added: “when we are talking about WWI even though the two sides are similar, led by the Germans in the one side and Anglo-Americans in the other, the lines between good and evil are not so discreet. Both sides were as evil as good and both sides acted like murderers employing the most nightmarish and inhuman methods to exterminate human lives.”

Ovi magazine is not a history magazine and in this issue we are not analyzing history, the hows, the whys and the whens. In this new thematic issue of the Ovi magazine we firstly express some thoughts about what happened then, but more importantly what happened after and how WWI influenced history and in what levels and secondly we aim to motivate our readers to search, read, form thoughts and opinions on their own.

For this issue I must thank first professor Anis H. Bajrektarevic. It was a series of emails and a long conversation that resulted to this thematic issue.

Then a thank you to: Professor Emanuel L. Paparella, Rene Wadlow and Professor Ernesto Paolozzi, for their participation in something so unique but the same time so …Ovi.

And finally a thank you to Thanos Raftopoulos for his illustrations. I know how scared he was when I asked him to do them; he absolutely got the spirit of the idea.

To download the magazine, HERE!

Enjoy the magazine and remember, don’t limit your self, search, discover, form your own ideas

Thank you

Thanos Kalamidas
