“Biuletyn” – the journal of the Polish Peasant Party in Exile – by Brussels-Washington group
Languages of publication
The paper describes the genesis and content of “Biuletyn”, the journal edited by management board of Brussels-Washington group of the Polish Peasant Party in the years 1977–1988. They were Stanisław Bańczyk and Hanna Chorążyna. The Editorial Board assumed that they would be shunning from rivalry among emigration groups and they would inform about the situation in Poland, about more important events in the world which were correlated with fighting the communism, about more important events in Polish emigration. These assumptions were fulfilled. In “Biuletyn” they wrote a lot about history of Poland, especially about Polish-Russian historical relations. They also wrote a lot about activity of the Pope John Paul II. The choice of materials was not coincidental. It was supposed to concentrate attention of members and supporters of peasant movement around these events. Assessing it, one should acknowledge that such a selection was correct and the editorial office kept track of the world events. It is only a pity that there were not many own authors and analysts (from the Polish Peasant Party). Nevertheless, majority of articles were a reprint from other, domestic or emigration magazines.
