Summary/Abstract: Relations between Poland and the Federal Republic of Germany, underpinned as they are by membership in the European Union and NATO, constitute the most developed segment of Poland’s foreign policy. They are characterised by high intensity, multifacetedness, and a well-developed institutional framework. In Poland’s 2009 policy towards Germany a high profile was given to historical reflection. This was in connection with international celebrations marking great anniversaries: the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War and the 20th anniversary of the victory of “Solidarity” in Poland—and, in a broader perspective, of the freedom breakthrough in Central Europe, including the fall of the Berlin Wall.
