Project “Recovering Forgotten History. The Image of East-Central Europe in English-Language Academic Textbooks” was organized by the Foundation for Civic Space and Public Policy in cooperation with University of Pécs (represented by Professor Endre Sashalmi), Slovak Academy of Sciences, Masaryk University, Center for Urban History of East Central Europe, Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, Polish History Museum. “The basic concept, which we implemented for the thirteenth time this year, is to persuade American authors and their publishers to make changes to their books. These books are widely used in various colleges. Unfortunately, they contain very little information not only about our country [Poland], but also about the past of Visegrad countries, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus... In fact there is very little in them about the territories of Europe between Germany and Russia” – says prof. Andrzej S. Kamiński, creator and moderator of the project.
