Abstract : This paper focuses on the extraction of German and Austrian place names in historical texts. Our text basis is Die Fackel The Torch published by Karl Kraus. The database we develop follows from a combination of approaches: gazetteers are curated in a supervised way to account for historical differences,and current geographical information is used as a fallback. Our maps highlight the linguistic and cultural ties of Kraus and his contemporaries -Die Fackel- is at least a European phenomenon; Kraus- vision of Europe is more inclined towards cultural centers.
