Okładka instrucji IX edycji konkursu „Historia Bliska”Here we present resources “for download”. They can serve various educational purposes, not only in history but in other areas of education too. They can be useful at school and after school activities both for teachers and pupils. They include: articles, instructions, official documents (e.g. relating to ministerial directives), manuals, as well as other resources showing how different problems in historical education are tackled by teachers in other countries.

We would be happy to present here also texts send by users of our website who wish to share their experiences and give advice to the others.

Interpreting iconographic sources (HISTORY AND HUMAN RIGHTS)

The aim of this part of textbook is to push recipients of the educational section to self interpretation of iconographic sources. So we present photos and comments separately. You can find there a proposal of a workshop. The sources are divided thematic: a) state interference and control – no 5, 10, 12, 13, 23, 27, b) relations between Minorities and Majorities – no 1, 2, 6, 11, 15, 29, c) social rights – no 7, 14, 16, 17, 20, 30, d) rights of accused and of convicted persons – number 3, 8, 9, 21, 24, 26, e) freedom of speech – number  4, 18, 19, 22, 25, 28. Most of the rights mentioned in interpretative texts were only codified after the events shown in the illustrations. The regulation of rights was, therefore, a kind of reaction to events and the rights were made law in order to ensure that similar events do not occur in the future.
