Syllabus for a History of Modern Poland

In case anyone is preparing a course on Polish history for next year, I thought it might be helpful to share the syllabus for my class on that topic. I'd be delighted to see how others organize their version of this survey, and it would be really helpful to get feedback about any aspect of my syllabus. Most of the primary source readings for the class are my own translations, and I'd be happy to share them -- just email me directly to request copies.

Looking for Soviet press reports on Polish government-in-exile

Good evening everybody,

Can anyone advise whether I can access wartime Soviet press reports and polemics directed against the Polish government-in-exile and the Anders Army? I am particularly interested in 1944. Can these sources be accessed online somehow?
