Yesterday, 10 September, a science conference entitled ,,Opole Silesia in times of the Uprisings 1919-1921” was held in the Museum in Praszka. Dr. Piotr Stanek, head of the Research Department, took part in it.
The presentation of the Museum representative was entitled "Lamsdorf in the background of the German armed forces". It began with a reminder that during the Silesian Uprisings and the plebiscite, in the area of today's Lamsdorf there was a military training ground, as well as prisoner-of-war, repatriation and training camps. At that time Lamsdorf was also a base for German military formations, a depot for weapons and ammunition, but also Silesian activists – opponents of the Reich – were interned there. This basic information were enriched, in Dr. Piotr Stanek’s speech, with a number of recent and very interesting findings of great cognitive value.
The conference was another event in our province which highlighted the centenary of the outbreak of the Third Silesian Uprising. It was organized by the Branch Historical Research Office of the Institute of National Remembrance in Wrocław, the Branch of the Institute of National Remembrance in Opole, and the Museum in Praszka.
