Bolesław Bierut on Law and Its Ideological Foundations in Poland before 1952
Languages of publication
This article addresses the impact of politics and ideology on the development of law in the Polish People’s Republic during the Stalinist period. The entire legal system was influenced, and it was mostly visible within constitutional law and criminal law. Bolesław Bierut’s persona demonstrates that statements made by the then highest ranks of the state apparatus were not without significance for the development and practical application of law. Abundant with ideology, Bierut’s addresses were a foundation for the continuing transformations and justification for increasing repressive measures against actual and imagined enemies of the new authority. A tool for the revolutionary changes was the law.
