Document granting property rights for a farm plot

Polish History Museum

Warszawa, Poland

The rules of dividing agricultural lands brought on many disputes – politicians from the Polish People's Party favored creating bigger farms (for high production) but allotment was undertaken according to the concept of the Polish Workers' Party (communists), which envisioned creation of a larger number of small farms. A separate decree about the agriculture system and settlement of the Recovered Territories became the basis for allotments.

The document's slogan reads "Proto-Piast Territories Returned to the Motherland."
