Jastrzębski graduated from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń in 1963 . He completed his habilitation in 1977 at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan and taught at the Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz and other educational institutes in the city.
He became known to an audience beyond the subject when, in a conversation in Gazeta Wyborcza in August 2003, he questioned the Polish historians' unanimous assessment of the so-called Bydgoszcz Bloody Sunday . So far the consensus in Poland had been that the acts of violence, to which ethnic Germans in particular fell victim, were the result of a staged provocation on the German side. Jastrzębski could not find any written evidence for this. As a result of the conversation, a historians commission was set up at the Instytut Pamięci Narodowej (Institute for National Memory), which comprehensively evaluated the archive material for Bloody Sunday.
