When the Habsburg State crumbled to pieces in 1918 the Austrian Germans
instinctively raised an outcry for union with their German fatherland. That was the
voice of a unanimous yearning in the hearts of the whole people for a return to the
unforgotten home of their fathers. But such a general yearning could not be explained
except by attributing the cause of it to the historical training through which the
individual Austrian Germans had passed. Therein lay a spring that never dried up.
Especially in times of distraction and forgetfulness its quiet voice was a reminder of the
past, bidding the people to look out beyond the mere welfare of the moment to a new
future.
The teaching of universal history in what are called the middle schools is still very
unsatisfactory. Few teachers realize that the purpose of teaching history is not the
memorizing of some dates and facts, that the student is not interested in knowing the
exact date of a battle or the birthday of some marshal or other, and not at all--or at least
only very insignificantly--interested in knowing when the crown of his fathers was
placed on the brow of some monarch. These are certainly not looked upon as important
matters.

Probably my whole future life was determined by the fact that I had a professor of
history who understood, as few others understand, how to make this viewpoint prevail
in teaching and in examining. This teacher was Dr. Leopold Poetsch, of the
REALSCHULE at Linz. He was the ideal personification of the qualities necessary to a
teacher of history in the sense I have mentioned above. An elderly gentleman with a
decisive manner but a kindly heart, he was a very attractive speaker and was able to
inspire us with his own enthusiasm. Even to-day I cannot recall without emotion that
venerable personality whose enthusiastic exposition of history so often made us entirely
forget the present and allow ourselves to be transported as if by magic into the past. He
penetrated through the dim mist of thousands of years and transformed the historical
memory of the dead past into a living reality. When we listened to him we became afire
with enthusiasm and we were sometimes moved even to tears.

Poor Ibis (like sheep: same noun for singular and collective). Wouldn't be reduced to Tip Chooks if we hadn't drained and otherwise f***ed all their wetlands.
****** funny little diddy, though! :lol:
