Dear Drivers,

We would like to inform you that starting from November 6, 2023, there will be a change in the traffic organization on the section of Provincial Road No. 382 between Boleścin and Grodziszcz due to road reconstruction.

Please follow the signs placed during the renovation and exercise extreme caution.

How does Krzyżowa contribute to the building of Europe through its inhabitants? Five people connected to Krzyżowa either professionally or socially answer this question. In addition, they reconsider what reconciliation and opposition are in the face of Russia's attack on Ukraine. They are interviewed by Prof. Dr. Waldemar Czachur, Irene Hahn-Fuhr, Elżbieta Kosek, Dr. Anna Quirin and Dr. Robert Żurek.


What is the situation with regard to German-Polish reconciliation?


Anna: The Polish ambassador in Berlin, Dariusz Pawlos, was asked the following question at an event: Are we still in the process of reconciliation or are we already partners? I would like to start our conversation with this question: Where do we stand on German-Polish reconciliation?

Irene: I would challenge the claim that reconciliation can ever be considered a closed issue. The word itself indicates a process. In both interpersonal and inter-state relations, periods of closeness alternate with periods of distance in order to get closer again. These are politically and socially natural situations. It would be good if we in particular - those who have been working for years on German-Polish relations in an awareness of historical contexts - did not exaggerate these different periods with different conflicts of interest. On the contrary, we should feel motivated again and again to consider how rapprochement can be fostered. As Albert Camus said: 'One must imagine a happy Sisyphus'. Clarifying long-standing and recurring disputes by means of argumentative negotiation processes would bring us much closer to an equal partnership than if we fall into and persist in periods of 'conciliatory kitsch'.


The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe will be a partner of the PNWM in the project Likhtar/ Ліхтар. The project is aimed at female teachers, educators and specialists in formal and non-formal education involved in Polish-German-Ukrainian youth exchange. Likhtar will include networking meetings, trainings, consultations, among others.

The Likhtar/ Ліхтар project has been running at the German educational institution Bildungsstätte Bredbeck since April 2022. Likhtar brings together people involved in international youth work from Poland, Germany and Ukraine, motivates and strengthens to implement exchange projects during the Russian war against Ukraine.

During the music therapy classes were used primarily
