Subject and Keywords:

World War II   international agreements   reparations   compensation   German-Polish relations   pragmatic formula


As part of the publication series "Breakthrough in German-Polish Relations 1989-1991 in the Light of Polish Political Documents. A Selection of Documents by the Willy Brandt Centre for German and European Studies at the University of Wrocław (Poland), the fourth volume entitled "Symbolic Act. Benefits from Germany for the Victims of Nazi Crimes in Poland. The 'pragmatic' formula in the light of the 1991 and 2000 agreements". Introduction, selection and compilation by Jan Barcz and Krzysztof Ruchniewicz was published. The publication consists of two parts. The first part contains legal commentaries that provide a substantive introduction to the second part. Its authors are professors of international law Jan Barcz, Witold M. Góralski and Jerzy Kranz. The second part contains documents of Polish diplomacy and extra-diplomatic material. These sources are often published for the first time. The editors' intention was to fill a gap in the existing literature. Recent public discussions involving politicians, publicists and some researchers have shown us that the state of knowledge on this difficult subject is highly inadequate and does not correspond to the importance of this topic. The present volume was intended to be the last in the series, but due to the topicality of the subject of reparations and compensation claims to Polish victims of the Nazi regime, it was decided to change the order of the individual volumes. The electronic version (based on OpenAccess) will soon be supplemented by a paper version.
