Bacalaureat în vreme de război. Elevii români refugiați la Odessa și Herson (1917) – Radu Tudorancea

This paper is focusing on a rather omitted, if not unknown issue of Romania’s participation into the First World War, namely the issue of the Romanian War refugees in the Tsarist Empire, more precisely – the odyssey of the Romanian High-school students in the refuge towns of Odessa and Herson, starting from their travel and arrival to the above-mentioned cities and continuing with their accommodation and daily life experiences, the classes taught at the Romanian improvised high-schools, culminating with the final exams of the Baccalaureate, organized in exile, under difficult times. Their final (holographic) papers, most of them kept in Romanian Archives, shed new light on the atmosphere and the context surrounding their exams, as seen through the eyes and minds of the Romanian teenagers facing the hardship of the external refuge, generated by the World War I.

Keywords: First World War, Romania, External Refuge, High-school students, Tsarist Empire.
