Information about the 42nd issue of the “Remembrance and Justice” journal (deadline for submitting articles is 28 February 2023)

The theme of the 42nd issue of the semi-annual “Remembrance and Justice”, which will be published at the end of 2023, will be broadly understood issues related to the history of Polish education in the years 1945–1989.

We invite you to submit academic articles dealing with the topic of sources for research on the history of Polish education in 1945‒1989, which are stored in archives in Poland and abroad. The situation of teachers and education workers after 1945 is also interesting from a research point of view. How many of them were there? What didactic methods did they use? How did they conduct their teaching activities? How did they function within the ideological and educational framework imposed by the state authorities? What were the relationships – on the one hand – between teachers and students, and on the other – between pedagogues and principals?

We also intend to look at the situation of students after World War II, taking into account their rights and obligations. We want to check whether they had the opportunity to develop their interests and abilities. We also want a multifaceted view of the school as an “institution”, “organization”, “system”, “emotional space” and a building.

Suggested thematic areas:

  • sources for researching the history of education,
  • the situation of teachers and education workers,
  • indoctrination and surveillance of the educational environment (students and teachers),
  • education as a propaganda tool,
  • independent activity of students and teachers,
