Summary/Abstract: The present article deals with the problem of individual and collective memory of the second and subsequent generations of Białystok citizens in the area of multiculturalism of their city. For many years it has been the home to many nations and presently it is also a place where racial, ethnic, and religious conflicts are visible. The book discussed in the article demonstrates such phenomena as eradicating the past of national minorities from the Polish history, negative national stereotypes in Poland, the spiral of hatred, roots of prejudices, as well as the struggle for human rights, the equality of the citizens, the freedom of speech and the work of activists who deal with xenophobia and oblivion, defending the “honor” of the city. We therefore have a choice of different behaviors which, if we use this book in polonistic education, will make the pupils aware of the multiplicity of attitudes towards the Other and indicate the desired ones.
