Craft activities for the social development of Wroclaw after the war and the period of Polish People's Republic are closely related with craft's economic functions. Directly after the war craftsmen took part in the reconstruction of the city from war damages. Moreover, delivering goods and services to the market which the state sector could not deliver, the craft had the influence on the improvement of life conditions. Education and upbringing activities were the most essential craft's achievements for the social development of Wroclaw. The paper also presents social and public activities of craftsmen.
