Legal propaganda in Communist Poland
Visiting Academics’ Seminar Series
A light lunch will be provided
After the end of World War II, Poland witnessed a revolution imposed from the outside by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. A legal revolution took place: radical changes were introduced by the means of terror and new legal acts, and the new rule of law was based on the anthropological concept of the new man in communism. Soon, with the tools of “Polish Newsreel” and full-length films, a massive action of communist legal propaganda was introduced.
