The change of political climate in 1956 gave an opportunity to start open discussion about the condition of Polish judicial system. You could mention opinions in which lawyers demanded repairing 'errors of the past' and proposed to impose measures for retaining legality in the future. The basic topic of this discussion was concentrated on question of rehabilitation of those, who were unjustly punished in the Stalin era. Judges and prosecutors were involved in the process of rehabilitation. The measures undertaken in 1956-1957 were far from expectations and from today's perspective these measures can be qualified as insufficient.
