Izabela Paszko (München): No One Speaks, Everyone Knows: Communication Practices in Upper Silesia under the NS Regime
9.6., 18 Uhr, online über Zoom
Im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe "Polen und seine Sprache(n)“
The period of German occupation and the tragic events of the Second World War, in the context of everyday life in the Upper Silesia, raise multi-faceted questions related not only to communication but above all to the dynamics of social interactions.
How did the inhabitants of the region negotiate the boundaries of privacy of interpersonal contacts with the intrusive policy of the occupier? How was the nationality policy implemented in areas with a distinctly Polish character? The answers to these questions do not put an end to the debate on everyday life in the Upper Silesia, but merely open up its next chapter.
