The year 1990 was a turning point in overcoming the communist legacy and shaping democracy in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe together with its partners in the project "1990 / Year One", Stiftung Adam von Trott, Imshausen e.V. (Germany) and Post Bellum (Czech Republic) have prepared educational materials for history and social studies teachers and all those interested in Europe's recent history.
Three versions of the materials, prepared especially for Polish, German and Czech schools, were created at the same time. They contain lesson and workshop scenarios, as well as a historical essay whose aim is to present the events which took place in Central and Eastern Europe in 1990. Materials prepared for Lithuanian youth are also to be published soon.
The publication was prepared within the project "1990/Year One. The democratic transformation in former Eastern Bloc countries". It is implemented in Poland, Germany, Czech Republic and Lithuania within the programme "Europe for Citizens – European Remembrance" and is co-financed by the European Commission. Project leader is Foundation Krzyżowa for Mutual Understanding in Europe.
