It is a collective collection comprising sub-collections of judicial, political, social and national discourses of predominantly political narratives reflecting ethno-national and political tensions in interwar Poland and specifically in East Galicia. Intense political situation in interwar East Galicia induced the acts of political terror largely committed by the Ukrainian nationalists and in some instances by the communists. The trials mirrored ethno-national narratives, challenges and responses and reaction of political spectrum to this ongoing political discourse.
Here are the well reflected political trials that brought up multif-vectorial societal responses, The Fedak Trial, The Steiger Trial, The Botwin Trial, the Jager at al Trial, the Trial of the Sobinski's murder, the Trial of Holowko murder, the Trial of Babij murder, and the Trial of Pieracki assassination. There were other trials. Largely over the organized politically spurred acts of terror and crimes committed by Ukrainian nationalists and collective trials over the West Ukrainian members of Communist party.
The state organized and implemented persecutions and trials known as the result of so-called Brzeskie elections when a large number of Jozef Pilsudski's and the ruling Sanation camp's opponent were imprisoned and tried is not regarded here as a political discourse pertaining directly to East Galician narrative.
