The year 1914 and L'viv and Galicia

Because of the 100th anniversary of the begin of World War I there are more publications about this turning point in the history. I wrote an article about the meaning of the year 1914 for L'viv and Galicia. I also wrote about the meaning of Galicia for the states Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and Russian Imperium at that time. I've analysed the press and the memoires.

Memory places of Kraków

I helped to conduct the seminar about history of and memory places in Kraków (13-19 May 2013) of Prof. Jürgen Angelow and (this time) Prof. Zdzisław Noga. The participants were students of the Freie Universität Berlin und Pedagogical University in Krakow. The topics of speeches were related as always to historical places (monuments, public places, churches etc.).

The development of the seminar's concept and the seminar organistation were very important to me since my Ph.D is dedicated L'viv's remembrance from 1867 till 1939.

Workshops "History and human rights"

History education can be connected with the field of human rights. Since 2010 I'm attempting to do it on a theoretical and practical way. I worked out a theory and methodology on it, which could be useful also for you. You can download it here.

You can also download workshop scenarios for work with adults and pupils here.
