Hungary and Poland: "Hungary" Stable Partner in Democracy. Building Partnership for Europe: Poland after a Decade System of Transformation. Fulbright-Hayes Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Hungary and Poland).
Henderson, Steven M.
This curriculum project provides insight into the transformation processes in which the nations of Hungary and Poland have been participating, from approximately 1979-2002. A major focus of the project is to organize a set of information that teachers and students can analyze and understand the Hungarian and Polish quality of life during the Soviet era and after each nation gained its independence. This curriculum compilation includes four sections: (1) ideas about how educators might use excerpts from the project with students as primary source material; (2) answers to a set of questions asked by the Fulbright seminar participant (the author) about politics, economics, and society in Poland and Hungary; (3) detailed lecture notes from each day of the seminar; and (4) a bibliography of materials for reader insights into useful topic resources related to Hungary and Poland. Three themes were employed to anchor the central questions used to interview lecturers and other participants in the project: (1) methods of political, social, and economic control used by the Soviet Union to govern in Hungary and Poland; (2) freedom efforts, employed by citizens in Hungary and Poland, which were aimed at securing political, social, and economic control over their own fate; and (3) how well Hungary and Poland have fared socially, economically, and politically since each nation gained its independence from Soviet influence.
