A lecture by Piotr Maciej Majewski

Piotr Maciej Majewski (1972) is a Polish historian who specialises in the history of Czechoslovakia in the 20th century, in particular Czech-German relations, a subject on which he has written numerous studies. Alongside a monograph on the choices facing the Czechoslovak Army in 1938 in a possible war with Germany, he has published a book on Edvard Beneš’s position on the Sudeten German question; most recently he brought out an extensive work entitled The Sudeten Germans 1848–1948, which should come out in Czech in 2014. Majewski lectures at Warsaw University and also serves as deputy director of the Museum of World War II in Gdansk.

Host: Jiří Friedl, historian and vice chariman of the Conditio humana civic association

The lecture will be held in cooperation with the Czech-Polish Forum, the Conditio humana civic association and the Museum of World War II in Gdansk.

Diary entry for 22. April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„To tell you the truth, it’s not just Americans and other foreigners who think of me as a kind of fairy-tale prince or at least as the main character in a fairy tale; I too am often aware of something utterly unbelievable in my own destiny. And I’m less and less able to understand that destiny; at times I even see myself as a minor freak of history.“
