Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 1923 Krak w riot refers to a riot that took place during a strike on 6 November 1923 in Krak w, Poland. The riot is also called 1923 Krak w uprising, particularly by the Marxist sources. Poland regained independence in 1918 (see Partitions of Poland), in the aftermath of the First World War, but was involved in several military conflicts, such as Polish-Soviet War, till late 1920. After the wars, the newly reconstituted country had to deal with a difficult economic situation, including economic depression and hyperinflation. Workers rights were curtailed, their material situation drastically worsened, and Polish socialists were in opposition to the coalition government of Endecja and Chjeno-Piast, with Wincenty Witos as prime minister. At the same time, Witos and his men were afraid that J zef Pi sudski, who for the time being was staying in his estate in Sulejowek, would use any opportunity to return to power. The Marshall was officially presenting himself as a private person, but his house was carefully watched by the police.
