He became provisional head of the Polish republic in 1944, even before the last Germans were driven from the country, and in 1947 was elected to a seven-year term as president.
By that time Bierut and his fellow Communists, with the backing of Stalin and the Soviet Army, had disposed of all effective opposition, and he began his efforts to Sovietize all aspects of Polish life.

WARSAW - Right-wing Polish legislators behind a parliamentary resolution requiring the Polish government to seek war reparations from Germany slammed the Polish cabinet's recent decision to "close once and for all" the reparations issue, Polish Radio reported.
MP Antoni Macierewicz said the government's declaration of "closure" echoed the 1953 decision of Poland's Soviet-backed communist prime minister Boleslaw Bierut who rejected war reparations for Poland despite Allied guarantees included in the 1945 Potsdam Agreement.
According to Macierewicz, Bierut's 1953 decision to forego reparations out of loyalty to Moscow, had no legal clout and was contrary to Polish national interests.

Stanislaw Mikolajczyk, whose role in Polish wartime and postwar history is so critical to understanding what Stalin was up to in that wretchedly tormented nation gets no mention whatsoever from Zubok and Pleshakov.
Wladyslaw Gomulka, who played a central role among Stalin's Polish agents (the other two, far more beholden to Stalin, were Edward Oso'bka-Morawski and Boleslaw Bierut), also goes unmentioned in this context.
The roles of the latter pair go unmentioned entirely, although they, like Gomulka, were regularly summoned to Moscow to hear the Kremlin boss's current wisdom on keeping their land in the plan, on track toward a Soviet paradise.
