Abstract:

The article present selected housing problems in Polish towns and cities in 1944–1956 that were referred to in the fi les of the Ministry of Municipal Economy stored in the Central Archives of Modern Records in Warsaw. According to the preserved documentation, the most frequent matters were: moulds (at the time described as a plague), refurbishments of residential buildings, their equipment with basic systems, i.e. water supply and sewage disposal; rubble clearings of towns and mining damages.The analysed documents have made it possible to present certain numbers, hard to acquire in a different way, pertaining to the abovementioned issues; for example, in 1950 in Wrocław 70 percent of buildings were damaged by mould. The percentage of townspeople using a municipal water supply system in 1949 was 58.9, and in 1955 – 66. In 1949 45.9 percent of people were using sewerage, while in 1955– 54.1. In 1953 only 13 percent of necessary repairs of water supply systems were carried out, while in 1954 – circa 23 percent.The thorough analysis led to the conclusion that even correctly diagnosed problems never got solved. This, roughly speaking, was the result of compulsory line of economic policy in Poland.
