Daniel Marc Segesser, Wolfgang Weber und Sacha Zala (eds.): Sehr geteilte Meinungen. Dokumente zur Vorarlberger Frage 1918–1922
In 1919, a committee in Switzerland published a poster demanding that the Swiss may support «their brothers in distress» in the recently founded Austrian province of Vorarlberg. In this independent Land of the Austrian Republic Deutsch-Österreich a referendum about the future of its state policy had taken place in the same year. A majority of 80% of the electorate demanded that negotiations about a prospective joining of Vorarlberg to Switzerland should begin. This volume collects various documents from national and regional archives, which reconstruct the process of the so-called Vorarlberg Question 1918–22 and draws attention to the stakeholders of contemporary politics in Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland as well as amongst the victorious Allies at the Paris Peace Conference.
