Summary/Abstract: The events from a hundred years ago, the centenary commemorations about the 1st World War make especially timely the revelation of that age’s cultural history. The society of Transylvania was sorely tried because of the events and in the meantime it illustrated the sufferings endured as a reflection in a mirror by its spiritual, value-creating power. This thesis is the first summary of the history of art’s references of the four war-time years concerning us. It presents the works of art of the creators who made a service in the field revealing the backgrounds of their genesis. There is distinct chapter joining all these which flashes the fates of the P.(O.)W. camps’ Transylvanian survivors on the basis of a manuscript unpublished so far.
