  • Pamięciowy lockdown

    Memory Lockdown | Erinnerungs-Lockdown

    The year 2020 was supposed to be the year to commemorate anniversaries of important events. These were being prepared for months but stopped by Covid-19.

  • The End of World War II

    Zakończenie drugiej wojny światowej | Das Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges

    How should we talk about the end of WWII? What narratives should dominate this story? Does our factual approach to this important date still make sense?

    The End of World War II
  • Do we need a Code of Ethics for Public History?

    Czy potrzebujemy kodeksu etycznego dla historii w przestrzeni publicznej? | Brauchen wir einen Ethik-Kodex für die Public History

    The rapid development of electronic media, including social networks, is forcing new behaviours, including dealing with public history.

  • Yet Another Memorial in Berlin?

    Po co jeszcze jeden pomnik w Berlinie? | Wozu ein Polen-Denkmal in Berlin?

    Should yet another monument in Berlin commemorate the Polish victims of the Second World War; in this case Polish citizens who suffered and died during the last war at the hands of German occupants?

    Yet Another Memorial in Berlin?
  • Signs of Remembrance

    Znak pamięci | Zeichen der Erinnerung

    The Catholic churches in Poland are not just sacred objects, today they are also places of remembrance. One of many examples is the Zesłańców Sybiru (Chapel of the Siberian-deportees) in Wrocław.

  • Unfortunate Choice of Words – or Is There More Behind It?

    “Polskie obozy” – świadome czy nieświadome fałszowanie historii? | Unglückliche Wortwahl – oder steckt mehr dahinter?

    In the textbook "Geschichte und Geschehen" the term "mass deportations to Polish camps" is erroneously used in the chapter about the Holocaust. The knowledge of the textbook’s authors, editors and teachers has thus been called into question.
