In recent years once can observe a distinct revival and increase in the interest in communism and the Peoples’ Republic period in Poland, even though it has been almost 25 years since their collapse. Communism and the Peoples’ Republic are a persistent component of contemporary life.

The weight of this subject encourages to a more systematic and general as well as critical analysis of the phenomenon itself as well as numerous cultural and literary discourses which have surrounded it.
