A reconstruction of the relations between the security apparatus and Andrzej Brycht, a writer popular in the People's Republic of Poland. Brycht debuted with stories, which contained a poignant portrayal of the cruelty of the Stalinist system, and in the 1960s became celebrated as the author of novels reflecting the reminiscences of war in the psyche of the young generation. Greatest, although specific renown was won by his 'Raport z Monachium' (Report from Munich, 1967) - a collection of accounts which in the convention of a pamphlet (on the borderline of a lampoon) presented the renascence of militaristic moods in the Federal Republic of Germany. Notoriety surrounding Brycht was partly of a non–literary nature. He created his image as a genuine proletarian, who describes life in the raw. His demonstrative anarchism, obscene vocabulary and rowdy conduct shocked public opinion, and several hooligan incidents (assault) resulted in court sentences. Although the message conveyed by Brycht's works (especially his political accounts) corresponded to the anti-German attitude of the Wladyslaw Gomulka team, ruling in 1956-1970, the writer's behaviour produced repressions on the part of the authorities. Censors prohibited some of his works, and he was watched by the Security Service.
