Powiatowe instancje Polskiej Zjednoczone j Partii Robotniczej wobec ludności ukraińskiej w powiecie zielonogórskim w latach 1949-1989 = The stance of the county units of the Polish United Workers? Party towards the Ukrainian population in Zielona Góra County in the years 1949-1989
Group publication title:
As the result of the ?Vistula operation?, certain Ukrainian families coming mostly from Lemkivshchyna settled on the terrains of Zielona Gora County. In 1963, the displaced persons from the "Vistula operation" constituted 10% of the county?s population (not including the city of Zielona Gora). ; The analysis of the documentations of the municipal and county units of PUWP in Zielona Gora indicate that the local party leadership, which concerned itself with almost all life aspects of the citizens that lived on their terrain, showed little interest in the Ukrainian minority. ; The cases of actual interest from the local PUWP units in the city and county of Zielona Gora were limited strictly to the cases of serious social crises that led to increased tensions in the region (the years 1956, 1961, 1971). The party leadership analyzed the public feelings of the local community, including the environment of the Ukrainian minority. The population of that minority was considered potentially dangerous.
