Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa

The centre of Sulęcin, Poland, 1959. The town was extensively damaged at the end of World War Two by Soviet troops and this part of Sulecin almost totally destroyed.

PRL or Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa (Polish People’s Republic) was the official name of Poland between 1952 and 1989. We have an extensive collection of photographs of Poland during this period of time and aim to scan and put many of these online in this section of the Poland Poland website.

To get the ball rolling here are a selection of images from that communist-era of the Ulica Kilińskiego area of the small town of Sulęcin in the province of Lubuskie in the far west of Poland.

Sulęcin 1970
A similar view of the 14th century Church of St. Nicholas in Sulęcin but ten years on.

By 1973 the once impressive buildings destroyed in the arson in 1945 had been replaced by socialist style buildings. Social apartment blocks, a restaurant, and shops.

Compare these views with a photograph from 1918 of the same part of Zielenzig / Sulęcin.
