Communism regime and Solidarity in Gdansk trip is about the time when Poland was part of Eastern Bolck. Poland became a communist country after WW2. Soviet Russians imposed communism against the will of Poles. After period of terror in late 1940’s and 1950’s communism became less oppressive in 1960’s. Despite of that many dissidents were still imprisoned and freedom of speach was a theory.

Solidarity trade union and number of strikes and demonstrations in 1970’s and 1980’s were consequences of incompetent governance of Polish communists. They didn’t want to realize challenges wich Poles experienced each day. Poles used to adapt to realities but frustration grew up and exploded many times.
