Project description:

The project "Germany and the Polish-German relations in contemporary history textbooks", conducted since October 2013, seeks to analyze Polish history textbooks used in school focusing on views expressed therein on Germany and Polish-German relations from the very beginnings to the present. Object of the analysis are curricula and textbooks of two school types, gimnazjium and liceum, as to be found in registers of the Ministry of National Education.


The research team is composed of doctoral candidates and research assistants of the chair of history at CSNE who analyze the content of textbooks focusing on issues selected by themselves, from the origin of the Polish state to current Polish-German relations in the European Union. An important element of the works is the development of a coherent research method that will allow for conducting similar research projects in the future or serve to enable an analogous analysis of German textbooks.

The planned project result is a book to be composed both of general parts, among them those regarding the influence of commemorative policy on the shape of teaching material, critical depictions of textbooks currently used in Polish schools, and of detailed analyses made during the realization of the project by individual members of the research team.


Finish of the project will by the international conference "Historical Policies and Education in East-Central Europe", planned for 6th to 7th October, 2014, conducted in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

Project director:

Dariusz Wojtaszyn PhD habil., Kai Reinhart PhD, Rene Wiese PhD

Implementation period: 

2014 — 2016


Project description:

The aim of this project, implemented on behalf of the German Football Association, is to elucidate different aspects of football culture in the East German sport system. In the centre of interest are elements such as GDR football successes and heroes, local and supraregional traditions and rituals, fan customs, collective symbolism, places of remembrance related to football, stereotypes and myths as well as the medial and social discourse associated with football in the GDR.


Particular attention is devoted to connections between the fan community  and its function under the conditions of real socialism (taking deviating behavior into consideration), and to the symbolic impact of football stars on the society of the GDR.

In order to implement the project, a broad range of methods from the subjects of history, cultural anthropology and sociology will be utilized.

Project Description:

The aim of this project is to make Jana Fuch’s work “The importance of ruins. The Great Synagogue in Warsaw’s reconstruction efforts 1945 – 1991”, which won the sponsorship award of the Polish Ambassador 2012 , accessible to a wider Polish audience. The work marks the first publication ever to focus in detail on the post-war history of the Great Synagogue in Warsaw, one of the most important and visible Jewish buildings right in the heart of Warsaw. Therefore the book not only makes an important contribution to the city’s history, as e.g. the long lasting discussion on the renovation of the Plac Bankowy is featured, but also contributes to the knowledge about Warsaw’s Jewish community and the Polish-German-Jewish relations in post-war history, because the perception (or rather the lack thereof) and thematic examination of the Jewish architectural heritage in Poland’s capital can be seen as the indicator of Polish-Jewish relations..
