Chapter Summary

This book discusses the development of opposition to Communist rule in Poland, and is distinguished from others in its focus on the experiences and perceptions of the people who participated in the historical events related to opposition of the Communist rule as presented through their voices. The accounts of the people are personal, direct and based on their own experiences; they clarify the meaning of broad historical events as they affected the lives, experiences and thoughts of these individuals, and those of the collectivities in which they took part, as well as the conclusions they drew from those experiences. By showing how they reacted to the circumstances that confronted them, one can see how they made history, and why they took the directions they did. Workers and komitet obrony robotnika (KOR) activists have also debated KOR’s centrality to the movement.

Keywords:Communist rule; historical events; komitet obrony robotnika (KOR); Poland; workers
