Internships at cultural and educational institutions

Making internship while study is very important. But you should look for the best institution for you.

I didn't think at the beginning about the culture department of Polish Embassy in Berlin, but thanks to help at the Polish Embassy I made this decision and it was the best one for me at this time.

So in November 2006 I deepened my knowledge about current Polish-German relationship from the perspective of diplomats and the Polish Foreign Ministry.  

I think practice is very important. Other internships I took part on were in July and August 2006 at German-Polish Youth Exhange and in September 2006 at the Highschool in Susz between Olsztyn and Gdańsk.

The Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg was a funding programme of Robert Bosch Foundation. This collegue supported popularisation of democratic values among young people from East Central Europe.

I was a member of the Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg from May 2005 till July 2006. The photos present the finish of the collegue in July 2006 in Berlin.

I recommend veryone to take part on trainings of every kind. Because I learnt to conduct an international seminar I took part on a training "How to conduct a seminar", which was organised by Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg of the Robert Bosch Foundation.

Eastern Europe on move

Project work is something very important for the personal development of young people. Students of Eastern and Central Europe could learn the project work in practice thanks to the Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg of the Robert Bosch Foundation.

Me as a member of the Kolleg together with two other members conducted an German-Ukrainian-Polish seminar about Eastern Europe on the move in Toruń in March 2006.

History of Śląsk / Silesia

History of the borderland on example of Śląsk / Silesia is very important for Poles, Czechs and Germans.

Difficult neighbourhood in Alsace and Lothringen

Relationships between France and Germany are called often as "difficult". Especially Alsace and Lothringen are the regions which caused conflicts.

So Prof. Jürgen Angelow and Prof. Bernhard Kroener (University in Potsdam) organised a seminar on the "difficult neighbourhood in Alsace and Lothringen in the 19th and 20th century". It took place at different places in Alsace and Lothringen in 2005.

I gave there a lecture about cardinal Richelieu's politics regarding other European countries.

Scientific background and mentors

My scientific background is based on study of German culture and language at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń 2002-2007 and history study at University of Potsdam 2007-2013.

I recommend you to go there because of many possibilities to develop your skills and interests. I took part on many excursions to different historical regions of East Central Europe and learnt to make researches on the history and culture of the region.

It all was possible only thanks to help of my mentors, Prof. Jürgen Angelow (University Potsdam), Prof. Maria Gierlak (Nikolaus-Kopernikus-University), Prof. Helmut Peitsch (University Potsdam), Prof. Włodzimierz Zientara (Nikolaus-Kopernikus-University) and Dr. Iwona Kotelnicka (Nikolaus-Kopernikus-University).
