Borders & Dialogue
On the second day of the workshop, predetermined Czech-Polish groups of students had to complete a “special” task, which consisted in documenting and photographically recording interesting aspects of Broumov or the surrounding area.
Specifically, this involved documenting the history and photographing the church of St. Margaret in Šonovo u Broumova, describing the activities of the German activist Enrich Ansorge from Křinice, listing the influence of the Broumov monastery (and its connection with the Polish side), finding information regarding the return of wolves to the Broumov region and creating a map of their (possible) wanderings, describing Kladsko and trying to define the Kladsko identity, photographing and providing information about the abandoned railway leading from Otovice to Poland, capturing the fate of the German population and the post-war arrivals to Broumov and Mieroszów, describing local folk architecture using the example of (not only) the Mědílek farm in Martínkovice, and documenting the pilgrimage route from Broumov to Vamberice.
The students took up the task with enthusiasm and I thank them for that. The results will be displayed on individual roll-ups, which will be destined for a travelling exhibition in the Polish town of Moszna and in Broumov.
