The treaty, concluded between Poland and Germany on 17th of June 1991, made it possible to enormously develop cultural, scientific and regional cooperation and laid the foundations for intensive youth meetings. With regard to Polish-German relations, the word "reconciliation" was used eight times in the treaty.
