Abstract:

After the end of World War II, the firemen and some other settlers, arriving in ziemia lubuska, managed to set up an effective fire fighting force - despite their insufficient numbers and lacking equipment. Over the period of 1945-1949 they helped the local people put out numerous fires in the region. Besides, they organized culture and education events for the village folk. ; However, their situation worsened when the Polish communists, unrivalled, came to power: the new authorities took steps to purge the firemen brigades from "inimical elements". They also succeeded in abolishing the self-governance of the OSP (Volunteer Firemen Brigades) and deprived the firemen of many of their treasured distinctions. That was how the ruling PZPR (United Polish Workers' Party) made volunteer-firemen lose completely their autonomy in the Stalinist period in Poland.
