Summary/Abstract: Since coming to power in 2015 Poland’s Law and Justice party (PiS) has enacted its historical policy aimed at ending the “pedagogy of shame”. President Andrzej Duda has brought back the mythology of an innocent and martyred Poland and expressed his wish to reunite the nation around common values, such as independence and Christianity in order to regain the nation’s pride.
