Red and Black in Poland

Sharp, Samuel L.
October 1953
New Republic;10/12/53, Vol. 129 Issue 11, p11
The article presents the facts related to the arrest of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski in Poland. The suspension and imprisonment of Wyszynski by the Polish government shows the lack of ability of co-existence between a Communist regime and a religious establishment. Jewish and Catholic welfare organizations were suppressed because their headquarters were in New York City or Rome, which, to the Communists, is about the same. Communists do not want these institutions to have foreign relations. Whatever the indirect aims pursued by the Polish government in its assertion of the right to remove Wyszynski, there is no visible basis for a successful and mutually satisfactory arrangement.
