The article shows the vastly diversified character of collective memory of the Great War in European countries. This diversity pertains also to Germany and Poland, Poland being in this respect a typical representative of the countries of Central and South-Eastern Europe. The tensions that stem from those differences are all the more noteworthy, as since the 1990s there has been a visible acceleration of changes directed toward shaping the Great War as a European locus of memory. This tendency is manifested in the activity of the leading European museums which organize exhibitions arranged according to a different outlook than before.
