Being Volksdeutsch in Poland – volksdeutsch-polish children in Upper Silesia in an Age of Extremes

Lisa studied for a Bachelors degree in “Culture and Management” at the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz. During that time she interned at the History Workshop Minsk and also studied at the Saint Petersburg State University of Economics (FINEC). She studied for her Masters degree at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), studying “Culture and History of Central- and Eastern Europe”, where she developed an interest in the processes of forced migrations, and skills in the field of Oral History.


Her thesis focused upon family memories of German expellees in the former GDR, and included multi-generational family interviews. During her Masters studies she participated in an ERASMUS exchange to the University of Worcław and interned at the “Federal Foundation Flight, Expulsion, Reconciliation” in Berlin.
