Summary: The author discusses ways in which this region of traditional industry has been depicted in textbooks prepared for use in the education system and argues that while the image is generally homogenous and stereotypical, there are differences in particular historical periods. While textbooks of the inter-war period showed the 'difference' of Upper Silesia, the socialist ones stressed its 'importance', currently the deterioration of the area is the dominant theme. The main factors shaping the contents of the textbooks have been the political regime, contemporary educational theories and the phenomenon of stereotype inertia.
Słowa kluczowe (w języku angielskim): Upper Silesia, image, stereotype, textbooks.
