Bârladul în Primul Război Mondial. Mărturii documentare

  • Subiect: „During the retreat and the refuge to Moldavia, numerous people, personalities from politics and culture and various institutions took shelter in Bârlad, as well as in other Moldavian towns. For a short period of time (from November 1916 to March 1917) the importance of the town was bigger than its size – it became a military base and a political factor, regarded as a real military capital of the unoccupied part of Romania. Here were to be found the headquarters of the Great Romanian General Quarter and its Russian correspondent for the troops sent to the Romanian front, as well as the Great Royal Quarter (located in Zorleni, on the private property of King Ferdinand) and the French Military Mission coordinated by General Henri Bethelot. In the Moldavian town of Bârlad there were also other important institutions such as The General Quarter of the Fourth Russian Army, The First Romanian Army Command, hospitals, military schools, various services and institutions. Thus, Bârlad became a overpopulated town with lots of refugees, important people, Romanian and Russian soldiers living in the town and its neighborhood, therefore its citizens were deeply affected by the necessity to find accommodation for all this demographic growth, by the lack of food, famine, bad weather, various diseases and epidemics and so on. Although there are numerous documents regarding the contribution of Bârlad's citizens to World War I, the situation of the town at that time is only depicted in fragmentary notes appearing in a series of generally autobiographical books.”
