Miscellaneous papers

box 3

Interrogation file of Wladyslaw Gomulka by Ministry of Public Security functionaries 1952-1954

Scope and Contents

Includes August 4, 1954 "directive" by Deputy Minister of State Security Roman Romkowski to deprive Gomulka of access to newspapers and fruit because of his "insinuations and slanders directed at the leadership of the Party." Handwritten notes like this, on ordinary paper, initialed and not signed, dominate the file. There was little semblance of conventional legality in the procedures; the party and its top enforcers were the highest law of the land.
box 3

Correspondence 1950-1957

Scope and Contents

Includes two letters of Ryszard Gomulka to his father and one from his mother, Zofia Gomulka, February and April 1954 and Gomulka's June 15, 1954, appeal "to the Government of the Polish People's Republic via the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party" a form of address in keeping with the complete supremacy of the party over the government for release for health reasons.

One of Gomulka's last photographs as the party's first secretary 1970 December 7

Scope and Contents

The occasion is a West German state visit to Warsaw. Chancellor Willy Brandt is at the far right and Gomulka, left of center. Cuban cigars and cognac being enjoyed by the party leadership are an eerie prelude to the events of the following week: drastic increases in food prices and workers' revolt that ended Gomulka's career.
