Abstract

The former Communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe have attempted to reconcile their Communist past in different ways. It is in Poloand, however, where the issue of dealing with its Communist past through attempts at lustration has been especially fraught. It will be argued here that Polands's lustration problems are caused primarily by a failure to understand the specific nature of totalitarian dictatorship that existed in Poland under Communist rule.
