Silesian Quarterly Historical Journal “Sobótka” [Śląski Kwartalnik Historyczny „Sobótka”] has been published in Wrocław since 1946 – initially as a semiannual periodical and a yearbook with the title “Sobótka”, and since 1957 quarterly, with the current title. It is among the oldest regional scholarly journals in the field of history in Poland and a significant element of Polish humanities. “Sobótka” is considered one of the most important periodicals concerning Silesian studies, but the editorial team remains open also to material from other thematic fields. The journal serves for presentation of research on history of Central and Eastern Europe, with a special focus on Silesia and neighboring regions and countries, as well as on regional history. For several years, its publisher was the Wrocław Society of History Enthusiasts [Wrocławskie Towarzystwo Miłośników Historii], i.e. the Branch of the Polish Historical Society [Polskie Towarzystwo Historyczne]; currently, the journal is published under the auspices of the University of Wrocław.


The article addresses the issue of the graves of Polish prisoners of war buried in Lower Silesia from September 1939, which were liquidated after 1945. The memory of the deceased soldiers is still maintained by their families, who search for their final resting places. This issue is illustrated by the example of the Polish prisoner of war Fryderyk Szulc, who died in September 1939 in Wrocław. The unsuccessful efforts of his family in trying to find the place of his burial in Grabiszyn Cemetery are reconstructed.
