Abstract:

In the article I present the backside facts and course of three most characteristic trials of editors and journalists working for gutter rags of the war period (that is the dailies and periodicals published by Germans in the Polish language in 1939–1945) which were held in 1946–1949. The first presented trial is the trial of Stanisław Wasylewski, one of the editors of the Gazeta Lwowska (Lvov Gazette), in which the accused was acquitted. The second trial was that of Helena Wielgomasowa, the author of 230 short stories and articles published in 1940–1945, mainly in the dailies: Nowy Kurier Warszawski (New Courier of Warsaw), Fala (Wave) and 7 Dni (Seven Days). The court sentenced the accused to six years of imprisonment. The last trial I described was characterised by the absence of the main accused: Jan Emil Skiwski and Feliks Burdecki, who fled abroad. Their absence undoubtedly influenced the severity of the sentences for other accused (from four to ten years in prison). All in all, in 1946–1949 41 editors and journalists were brought up before the court. One person was sentenced to death and three to life imprisonment; five accused were acquitted.
