From the Activities of the Coordination Committees between 1936 and 1939
Languages of publication
This article presents the origins of creating the Coordination Committees (Komitety Koordynacyjne) including the internal factors, the international state of affairs and the experiences of the First World War. The process of their forming in the respective Corps District Commands, organisational structure as well as a programme for operating is showed here. A particular attention was placed on the role of the CCs in realising a programme for consolidating the Polish society against the backdrop of escalating war threat between 1936 and 1939. One of the major arguments was a matter of CCs’ operating right next to CDC II, which played an essential role in the Polonising re-vindication programme in Chełmszczyzna and Wołyń Voivodeship. Due to the space constraints, the aspects which referred to engaging in the acts of demolishing Orthodox churches in Lublin Voivodeship were omitted. However, it was precisely the participation in demolishing Orthodox churches, or the religious conversion in Wołyń, which became, not quite justifiably, a trademark of CCs.
