Example text

The Polish Socialists who published a newssheet under the name Barricade of Freedom (Barykada Wolnos´ci) became the lynchpin of the socialist groupings opposed to the WRN during this period. It was noted that they had particular support among the workers of Warsaw and the industrial town of ´Lódz´. At the end of 1941 the communist movement seemed destined for oblivion. Members of the Communist Party of Poland (Komunistyczna Partia Polski – KPP), which had been disbanded by the Comintern in 1938, tried to distribute pro-Soviet propaganda and to cooperate with Soviet military units.

General references were made to land reform, the single most important issue for the peasant community, though the criteria for deciding which landed estates would be taken over and redistributed were left intentionally vague. 33 WRN made clear its commitment to fighting Poland’s two enemies, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. As the source of Poland’s internal instability, WRN identified the Jewish community. The programme made a commitment to taking away from the Jews what was described as their excessive influence in finance and trade.

All political movements wanted to maintain their own military organizations with a view to using them in the battle for power that would follow the liberation of Poland. 16 Two political groupings and military units loyal to them remained outside the PKP and the ZWZ. These were the extreme nationalists and the radical left. The picture conveyed to London was not promising. It was admitted that even where unity had been forged, as was the case with the four parties that supported the government-in-exile, this was very fragile and therefore susceptible to internal strains.
