    One thought on “My Polish Spring”

    1. This short book is an extraordinary eyewitness account of Eastern Europe at the height of Stalinism. In 1949 ice skater Heather Campbell met her husband Ian on a tour to Paris. Both ardent Marxists, they took part in a Bastille Day celebration together. They married in England the following year. Then Ian Campbell, who was doing scientific research for the British Medical Research Council, met some Polish diplomats and conceived the idea of helping them build socialism by contributing to Polish [...]

    2. Eyewitness account of a pair of British Communist idealists who gradually become disillusioned as they realise all within the socialist garden isn’t as rosy as they thought. The title, "My Polish Spring" refers to a little known piece of Polish history that was overshadowed by the Suez Crisis of 1956 and the Soviet invasion of Hungary. In Poland Władysław Gomułka had replaced the previous hard line Stalinist Bolesław Bierut. Gomułka insisted that he be given real power to implement furthe [...]

    3. Reading a book like this makes you wonder how some people can be so silly. Even after several years of living in a so obviously incredibly repressed, cruel and unjust country, the writer still didn’t twig on to the fact that everything was horrendously wrong. And it’s not as if hundreds living around her didn’t express their views that it was horrendous. How can anyone with a reasonable education be so blinkered, we ask ourselves. But it’s not just the left who seem to so uncritical. Rea [...]

    4. This is a fascinating insight into an aspect of the Cold War about which not much is commonly known. It is a pithy, well written account. It details the sense of confusion of a young couple who do are not fully accepted in their chosen homeland on the 'other side of the Iron Curtain'As I read this book, I found that I had so many questions. Should you read it, I can assure you that you will need to wait until the very end to have many questions answered.Heather had many concerns about leaving he [...]

    5. It’s unusual to read a memoir about someone who defected to the Eastern Bloc rather than want to escape from it, and as such this book is a compelling account of a couple whose commitment to their political beliefs made them give up a relatively happy and privileged life in the UK to go to Poland to help build the new socialist society they so much believed in. Committed Communists Heather and Ian married in 1950 and not long after decided to commit further to their convictions and move to Pol [...]
