This international and interdisciplinary conference aims to examine the strategies of National Socialist non-military exertion of influence and expansion of power in Eastern Europe. The conference will consider such questions as the relationship between National Socialist territorial policy and ethnic policy on the one hand, and the reason of state and the regional identities in the countries of Eastern Europe on the other hand. There will also be a comparison of the different regions with regard to political instrumentalisation and the cultural impact of ideologies.
On 19th of April, we commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. On this day in 1943, at the behest of Heinrich Himmler, German troops entered the ghetto to complete the deportation action and clear the ghetto. They encountered an unexpected resistance of Jewish combatants, who for almost a month were fighting with the occupant – with no hope for victory but wishing to retain dignity and honour.
Today, on the third anniversary of the plane crash in Smolensk, we extend the title of the exhibition devoted to Andrzej Przewoźnik - "We shall remember" - to all the victims of the crash. Representatives of European Network Remembrance and Solidarity will light candles on the graves of those most important for the creating of the Network: Andrzej Przewoźnik and Tomasz Merta.
