At the beginning of the year, we posted an English-language publication containing historical essays designed to tell the story of 'stolen children' from Central and Eastern Europe. It depicted the policies of the Nazi authorities, the process of obtaining and germanising children and, by showing the fates of individuals, how strongly these events left their mark on them.

The publication included texts by authors from Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Ukraine [link]

Today we are posting all the texts from this publication in the national languages of their authors:


  • esays prepared by Polish female authors in Polish [link]
  • esays prepared by German authors in German [link]
  • esay prepared by author from Czech Republic in Czech language [link]
  • esays prepared by authors from Ukraine in Ukrainian language [link]

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that after the summer break we will publish more educational materials, podcasts and witness accounts. We invite all those interested to follow our website and social media.

The above-mentioned publications were produced within the framework of the international educational project Uprooted - (Hi)Stories of Stolen Children during World War II, implemented in Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, thanks to the support of the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) and the German Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF).
