Languages of publication
The article is about the fate of Polish police officers imprisoned in NKVD prisoner-of-war’s camp in Jukhnovo and Kozelsk. It presents the huge pressure of Stalin’s loyal people on operational officers of NKVD whose work was to expose and isolate those who did not agree for any form of cooperation with the Soviet authorities, conducted counterrevolutionary activities and consider reconstruction of independent Poland. It shows the sequence of top-down decisions taken and implemented in camps, between camps as well as between camps and prisoners. Presenting the decisions which were aimed at detecting ‘dangerous’ police officers allowed to show how important for NKVD was people who executive posts at the State Police. It was demonstrated, that while the exposed police officers were moved from Jukhnovo camp to Kozelsk camp, or from both camps directly to prisons, it was decided to send all police officers for grueling forced labour which was aimed not only at humiliating, but also causing death.
