The Democratic Opposition in Poland (1976–1989) towards the History and Memory of the Kielce Pogrom

The Polish democratic opposition created a polemical to the offi cial vision of modern history (unmasking white spots such as the Katyn massacre, Soviet repressions against Poles, and the history of the Home Army). The subject of Polish-Jewish relations was also addressed, referring to the negative attitudes of Poles towards members of this minority, including the use of violence. The opposition initiatives related to the history of the Kielce pogrom, which took place in July 1946, were part of this trend.
