Forgotten Words of the Polish People’s Republicby Franciszek Czekierda is a unique collection of expressions commonly used in communist Poland, which — over time and as a result of changing reality — have long been forgotten and today sound completely foreign to many of us. The items refer to specific fields, such as technology, culture, fashion, commerce, or sports.

Having a great memory of the life in the period of the Polish People’s Republic, the author explains each phrase in a vivid and practical way, often adding an interesting anecdote. In this way, those of us who have only learned about the former system from history books, have a chance to find out the meaning of such words as dziegieć (tar), musztardówka (mustard glass) or saturator uliczny (drinking water saturator stand), as well as get to know the profession of cinkciarz (money changer).
