Memories of the Khyriv School Kept Alive by Its Students: Sources and Methodological Contexts
Topij-Stempinska, Beata
Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, v55 n4 p608-625 2019
The Scientific and Educational Department of the Jesuit Fathers in Khyriv (Zaklad Naukowo-Wychowawczy OO. Jezuitów w Chyrowie) existed for 53 years (1886-1939). Over 6,000 students studied in this elite male school. The alumni of the secondary school belonged to the elite of Polish society. There were among them people from different walks of life. The Chyrów school must have been a special place for its students, because they preserved its memory for dozens of years. Some of them immortalised their reminiscences in their memoirs. Basing on the preserved source materials, I will try to reconstruct the memory of the school, its past -- ambience and climate, as well as relations between students and between students and teachers. The preserved documents may allow us to unveil other less formal sides of the school life about which there is no evidence in the official sources.
