The article presents the subject of resistance of the sabotage nature which was not so much known in Poland. Apart from the information about the range of the sabotage phenomenon, the Polish legislation on repression matter for these types of acts and the structure being involved in combating that phenomenon has been discussed. The article is a monograph on the development of that interesting issue. Its chronological frames include the years 1944/1945–1956 and are in accordance with the widely accepted chronological division in the latest history. The year 1956 was a turning point in a policy of the Polish authorities. Assuming power by Gomułka, liberalization of social life, stopping the Stalinist tyranny and practices and reorganization of security services caused that the sabotage during these times was perceived in a lenient way. It was limited, although other forms of resistance were more intensive, for example anonymous letters, leaflets or strikes. The basis of the preliminary sources of that article are materials prepared by the Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of the Interior, deposited in the Institute of National Remembrance Archive in Warsaw.
