Abstract

About 1,500 children and adolescents aged 13–19 die in Poland yearly. The Constitution of the Republic of Poland, Chapter II Article 70 determines that everyone shall have the right to education and that education to 18 years of age shall be compulsory [1]. Therefore, it is highly probable that some pupils and students will face the death of some of their peers. Research projects conducted among teachers, lecturers in higher education and students describe the experience itself as well as its impact.
