Summary/Abstract: This article is a critical discussion of the diary of one of the leading ideologists and politicians of the National Democracy in the twentieth century, Jędrzej Giertych (1904–1992). For more than half a century Giertych embodied everything that was considered political extremism in our nationalist tradition. Even in the late twentieth century, he symbolized the extreme fringe of the national traditions. Characteristically, for over a decade, in the face of political polarization in Poland, elements of that heritage have been included into the mainstream of thinking about public affairs.
