Two JDU doctoral students in history, Anna Wójcik and Adrian Musiał took part in the 11th edition of the Summer School of Modern History hosted by the Institute of National Remembrance (INR) which was held in the XIX-century Biały Pałac (White Palace) in Palczew from 4 to 9 September.
19 young researchers from different research centres in Poland had a great opportunity to attend lectures given by foremost Polish historians of modern history: dr hab. Mieczysław Ryba, ks. prof.

During the seminars chaired by dr hab. Mirosław Szumiło, dr Władysław Bułhak and dr Rafał Łatka a discussion was preceded with the presentations of the outcomes of the participants’ research connected with their future PhD dissertations.
