  • Traces the history of post-war Poland : the reconstruction of a devastated country, the establishment of a communist regime, the difficult Stalinist years, the periodic upheavals and uprisings which finally led to the birth of the first free trade union and mass oppositional movement in a communist-dominated country, the armed strike against Solidarność on December 13, 1981, and the rise of an underground cultural and political organization.
