[Short history of Polish and German relations in field on the history of medicine].
The beginnings of regular contacts between historians of medicine from Germany goes back to 1977. The initiators of them were: from German side Prof. Georg Harig, from Polish side Prof. Tadeusz Brzeziński. Since then 4 conferences have taken place: two in German, and two in Poland. Another flow of contacts there became a cooperation on the grounds of Société Internationale d'Historie de la Médecine. It has brougt the fruits of contacts mainly between Szczecin centre and Professors Hans Schadewaldt and Heinz Goerke, and also between other Polish and German Departments of Medical History. The idea of revival of the conferences was born at the Congress of Medical History in Glasgow and a present conference is the fruit of it.
