On December 7, 2022, we had the pleasure of hosting a workshop with Anna Kurpiel (Centrum Studiów Niemieckich i Europejskich im. W. Brandta, Uniwersytet Wrocławski) and Katarzyna Maniak (Uniwersytet Jagielloński) who shared with us the results of their project “The reality of things in the post-conflict space. The role of objects in the creation of Wrocław and Szczecin imagined worlds”, financed by the National Science Centre.
We were discussing how currently the descendants of the settlers approach formerly German objects and to what extent the class they belong to affects their views on the subject. We were particularly interested in methodological topics and comparing our experiences with fieldwork.
