"Siberia and Poland - Common Places in Literature and History" is a publication that provides an interdisciplinary look at the complex relationship between Poland and Siberia, revealing its multidimensional nature in both historical and cultural contexts.


The publication has been prepared by a team comprising historians, literary scholars, cultural scholars, musicologists and ethnographers, allowing for a comprehensive approach to Siberian issues. The authors, who come from different academic disciplines, have contributed to a rich and varied narrative that takes into account both 19th and 20th century experiences. This makes the book not only a source of knowledge, but also a platform for reflection on the past and its impact on the present.

The multi-faceted analysis also reveals where Siberian research currently stands for scholars and researchers who have neither access to archives in Russia nor the opportunity to travel to Siberia. The book pays particular attention to two key aspects - 'experience' and 'memory'. The authors and contributors seek to capture both the difficult and painful moments in the history of Polish-Siberian relations, as well as the uplifting and creative ones. Each chapter emphasises the importance of collective memory and individual experiences, making this monograph not only a scholarly analysis, but also a form of commemoration and tribute to the past.

The monograph consists of studies by almost thirty researchers, which guarantees a wide range of perspectives and topics. Readers are free to select chapters according to their own interests, following historical, geographical or issue-based criteria. This flexibility makes the book accessible and appealing to a wide audience, from scholars to history and culture enthusiasts.

The book is the result of a collaboration between the Mieroszewski Centre, the Sybir Memorial Museum and the University of Warsaw.
