Example text

This article extolled the work of the Soviet-sponsored “Free Germany National Committee” and claimed that the PPR had “many comrades” among Poland’s German community. 13 Gomułka was a largely self-taught, veteran Communist activist who specialized in labor agitation. He spent a number of years in prison in the interwar period under the Sanacja. He rose to prominence in the Polish Communist movement after 1939 as the Soviet Union, Poland’s Nazi occupiers, and a short but brutal intraparty struggle within the PPR (in which he was not involved) killed off more experienced and well-trained Communist activists.

He spent a number of years in prison in the interwar period under the Sanacja. He rose to prominence in the Polish Communist movement after 1939 as the Soviet Union, Poland’s Nazi occupiers, and a short but brutal intraparty struggle within the PPR (in which he was not involved) killed off more experienced and well-trained Communist activists. He was a stubborn, dogmatic labor organizer who stood by his Communist beliefs and the Stalinist Soviet Union (which had proclaimed his party to have been a nest of Trotskyites and Fascists).

He was especially struck by the marching of the town’s soldiers: Skwierzyna [Schwerin] is a small town, with only a few streets, and I marveled at how these units kept marching about the town and were never bored with it. This suited the Germans wonderfully. 57 Since 1926, Poland had been under the rule of the quasi dictatorship of the aging Marshall Piłsudski and his Sanacja government. In 1933, there were widespread rumors that Piłsudski favored launching a preventative war against Hitler’s nascent regime.
