    What did the communists in Poland tried to do after the war?

    Hello, can you please help me to understand what is the meaning of this sentence?
    "The Communist Party would have had to challenge the Polish populace by accurately representing the Holocaust in the public sphere. Indeed, the Communist Party’s war narrative was more easily integrated
    into Polish national consciousness because Polish witnesses to the Holocaust, as well as
    Jewish Holocaust survivors, frequently confirmed distortions of the past."



    I don't understand the meaning of the paragraph. Can you write me this in other words?

    Thank you.

    Re: What did the communists in Poland tried to do after the war?

    This is my understanding of the paragraph:

    The Communist Party would have had to disagree with the Polish people's view of their role in the war and the Holocaust. [The previous section of this paragraph talks about how there was an emphasis on the many acts of heroism which avoided any admission of personal, or collective, guilt].

    The Communist Party's version of what happened in the war fit in more easily with the Polish people's view, because Polish witnesses to the Holocaust, as well as Jewish Holocaust survivors, frequently confirmed this distorted version of the past.

    Note that your title should have been "What did the Communists try​ to do ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    into Polish national consciousness
    I'd say into the Polish national consciousness.
