Abstract

The European Solidarity Centre in the northern Polish city of Gdańsk is a striking rust-red hull towering over the city’s shipyards. Inside, you can sit in a police carrier from the 1980s, giving you some faint sense of what it was like for protesters in Poland struggling against the late-era Communist state under its most repressive period: martial law from December 1981 to July 1983.
