Poznan Riots in Poland 1956

[ 1956 ]

In June 1956, scores of demonstrators died when army troops quelled street riots in Poznan, inaugurating a recurrent phenomenon of Polish worker protest against the self-proclaimed workers' state.

More than 50 people were killed by Soviet troops suppressing massive riots in Poznan, Poland; one of the earliest of the wave of riots that swept Eastern Europe after Khrushchev's secret speech on the crimes of Stalin.
