My House on the Oder
Memoirs of New Settlers in the Oder Region

Beata Halicka

Deutsche Fassung


The history of the Oder region can now be observed from a new perspective. Diaries of people who were resettled there from various parts of Poland and Ukraine are now accessible. They tell of social and cultural differences, conflicts and problems of integration, which prevented a new regional identity from taking shape. This is only now the case. Now we have an opportunity to confront the history of the region and that of the people in their fractures and contingencies.
