The building was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science ( Pałac Kultury i Nauki imienia Józefa Stalina ), but in the wake of destalinization the dedication was revoked; Stalin's name was hastily removed from the interior lobby and one of the building's sculptures.Polish WarsawPolanddestalinization
