8 x reconciliation - under this slogan, together with our partners, we organize 8 events that present and honor the effects of the Treaty on Good Neighbourhood at various levels. The treaty concluded between Poland and Germany on 17 June 1991 settled many controversial issues that divided both countries and nations. It enabled a huge increase in cultural, scientific and regional cooperation and created the basis for intensive cooperation between Poland and Germany.
