Dissonant Heritage of Central Europe - new issue of the HERITO quarterly
Should the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw be preserved or demolished? How to address the dissonant heritage of death camps and monuments to the Red Army? What is the secret to the phenomenon of some “large plate” tower blocks and Socialist Realist architecture? Are we willing to take responsibility for the entirety of material inheritance passed to us by older generations regardless of their national or ideological connotations? Authors featured in the 29. issue of “Herito” quarterly seek answers to these difficult questions.

The 1883 launch of the luxurious Orient Express brought a growing number of guests from all over the world. Today, the city has its greatest admirer in the Nobel Prize winning writer Orhan Pamuk, who provides an unmatched portrait of its mysterious melancholy.
