The Constitution was prepared in its original form according to the model of the Stalinist constitution of the USSR in 1936. It was mainly a declarative and propaganda act. It did not regulate the operation of the main center of political power, i.e. PZPR, which resulted in its façade nature. In practice, the constitution was of less importance than the statute of the Polish United Workers’ Party, which referred to the communist idea (Marxism-Leninism). The Russian version of the constitution was personally amended by Józef Stalin and the final Polish version was prepared by Bolesław Bierut, president of Poland. There is an extra notice made by the previous owner from the cold war era about the constitution, founded inside.
