The Triumph of Provocation

Yale University Press

This chapter examines Poland's relationship with its Soviet invaders. It suggests that the theory of “the two enemies” was never put to practice and explains that the general situation was that everyone had to be anti-German out of national duty, but only those who had been granted prior permission by the Underground authorities could be anti-communist. It also discusses the depiction of the Home Army as “heroic” and Wladyslaw Gomulka's 1962 speech about the creation of the Polish Workers' Party.

Keywords:   Poland, Soviet invaders, two enemies, anti-German, anti-communist, Home Army, Wladyslaw Gomulka, Polish Workers' Party
