Communist regimes in their Stalinist stage imposed effective non-exit policies that dramatically reduced international mobility, long-term emigration in particular. This paper shows how, following the post-Stalin "thaw" international migrations from Poland reemerged and took mass scale. It pays particular attention to micro-sociology of non-conformist behaviors, the dynamics of diffusion of previously suppressed practices and institutional evolution of the regime.
