Institute of National Remembrance Warsaw, Poland
Abstract. The city of Katowice, which in the Second Republic of Poland was the capital of the Silesian Voivodeship, in the first days of the Second World War became the area of events that until recently were the subject of great controversy. The battles waged both in the city itself and in its surroundings, their intensity and participants, and finally the executions, have only recently been more fully exposed with the help of archival materials, both Polish and German.
