Summary/Abstract: The appearance of the 100th anniversaries of the Silesian Uprisings in the historic calendar of official events in 2019, 2020 and 2021 signifies their place in Poland’s most recent history. Such a state of affairs constitutes the pretext expressed by the author of the paper who postulates an updated and revised edition of the Silesian Uprisings’ Encyclopaedia originally published in 1982. It should include the elimination of errors and lacks exhibited in the critical reviews written by the acclaimed historians as well as the implementation of the contents that were impossible to appear in academic and popular publications due to censorship of the so-called real socialism era. Finally, the paper postulates the enlargement of the perspective by including the German side of the conflict represented by German historians invited to collaboration.
