The subject of the article is the collaboration of the German historian Bernd Bonwetsch, head of the Department of East European history of the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany), subsequently the founding director of the German Historical Institute Moscow, with Kemerovo State University and the regional public organization West Siberian Center for German Studies (Kemerovo) until the death of the scientist in 2017. The center, created in 1999, united historians-Germanists and lecturers of the universities in Western Siberia. The interaction of Bernd Bonwetsch with the University and the West Siberian Center for German Studies (ZSTSGI) was unique in both format and form. Unique in the sense that this center and Kemerovo University are in the region very remote from Moscow, and at the same time one-of-a-kind in terms of intensity and variety of cooperation. The author of the article tries for the first time to outline the role and significance of the activity of the German scientist in and for the Russian province, to acquaint the reader with the evaluations and the judgments of the professor on the most important issues in the history of Russia and Germany in the 20th century. The sources for the article were Bonwetsch's published findings on his family, the German Wikipedia, Bonwetsch's notes on people and their destinies, his published articles based on the materials of the conferences organized by ZSTSGI, as well as meetings and discussions with the author.
