We are great enthusiasts for Polish history and historiography. Our aim is to search out, edit and publish on this site essays, articles and papers on aspects of recent Polish history. We like the light and shade, the traitors and heroes and all the stuff in between. As a start, we want to investigate the difficult areas and interpretations concerning the Second Republic, the Occupation and war years and the traumatic post-1989 period.

We want these papers to be in English; there are already many great historical websites in Polish. Also we want them to reach out to an English-speaking readership, whose knowledge of Polish history may not be as passionately informed.

We aim to write papers ourselves too, and to invite you to contribute to the debate.

If you are a professional or amateur historian, British, Polish or other nationality then publishing in the Varsovian may be your place.
