Abstract

Abstract Zygmunt Mańkowski (1926-2012), Full Professor, was an eminent historian who spent almost his entire professional career at the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin. He specialized in the Second World War with particular emphasis on the German occupation of the Lublin area. The issue of the resistance movement, in particular his studies on the Home Army, made him the object of interests of the Security Service (Służba Bezpieczeństwa). The authorities took a negative approach to his scientific area of research, as the priority was given to the research on communist resistance movement. Mańkowski was kept under surveillance for eight years (1968-1976). The surveillance process can be divided into several stages. The most important and, at the same time most dangerous one, was the period of the first three years. At that time he had his house bugged, the workplace search was conducted and his correspondence was monitored. All these actions were secret and considered unlawful even in the light of the communist rules. Subsequently, the hostile actions against Mańkowski decreased, but he was still surrounded by secret communist collaborators. During the whole period of his surveillance there were 24 of them. However, his anti-regime activities have never been proven. He remained at the university where he worked for the benefit of science.
