Two men against history A comparative analysis films by Miklós Jancsó and Andrzej Wajda

The death of Miklós Jancsó provides a tragic apropos to evaluate the universal implication of the oeuvre of the great leftist director, who was always critical towards the world of capitalism. The Polish author comparatively analyses two movies of Wajda and two movies of Jancsó to conceptualize gripping aesthetical conclusions that introduces the two great directors into the context of both national and universal movie culture.

Light and Shadows: Catholic Church Leaders, Anti-Semitism and Holocaust during the Horthy Era (1920-1944)

Due to the lack of institutionally supported fundamental research and ideologically established partial taboos this topic is hardly examined. With selected resources, he shows that in this era church leaders transformed Catholicism into a racist concept, which excluded converted Jews as well, rejecting their assimilation. Instead of actual protection moral consolation was offered.

Anti-Francoist Social Movements in Barcelona: Social and Political Victims Become the Founders of a New Democratic Civil Society under Dictatorial Rule

In historians' circles it is common to describe the democratic transformation in Spain as the merit of the Francoist elite. In fact, the political transition was preceded by nearly two decade long movements developed from below and it was forced by the radical democratization of the masses and their growing protests against authoritarianism. The emerging movements identified themselves as victims of the Franco regime that created the bond between them and provided the necessary solidarity and moral superiority during the fight against the regime.
