The Poles and Berlin

The Centre for Historical Research in Berlin, which belongs to the Polish Academy of Sciences, has begun a new long-term research project called "We Berliners!" about the influence of Poles on the German metropolis. In an interview with Joachim Trenkner, Robert Traba, director of the research centre, points out that Germans and Poles need to know more about the development of their bilateral relations. "We must finally grasp the fact that our common history consists of more than just a couple of decades in the 20th century. We should see it from a 'long-term' perspective that takes into account the diversity of historical events, and explore it using different research methods. This certainly won't have the effect of playing down its importance. On the contrary, the point of all dialogue in sciences is the reassessment of research methods regarding the most important subjects and the creation of new challenges, because so many perspectives come into play, including those that result from different national traditions."
