'Militärtechnische Entwicklungen im 19. Jahrhundert führten zu wachsenden Gefechtsverlusten und trugen in der Folge zu einem neuen Bild von Heldentum bei. Der vorzeitige Tod avancierte dabei zu einem Leitmotiv der Gedenkkultur. Dieser Aufsatz behandelt verschiedene, mit diesen Prozessen verbundene Objektgruppen, wie Flaggen, Denkmäler, Orden, Plakate und Gemälde sowie Trophäen, die auf Formen der Heldenverehrung und auf ihre Rolle in der Erinnerungskultur hin untersucht werden.' (Autorenreferat) 'The development of warfare technologies during the 19th century and the resulting losses in battle contributed to a new image of heroism, which centered around the common soldier. Premature death was considered a supraindividual ideal and served as a leitmotif for the commemoration of those killed in action. Albeit this indicates a mass phenomenon, there are still attempts to reintegrate and highlight individual performances. This article pro-vides a close look at different groups of objects relating to these processes, i.e. flags, monuments, medals, posters and paintings as well as trophies, all of which evoking a positive image of premature death.'
