Minnesotans flocking to the State Capitol in the next couple of weeks will have a unique opportunity to reflect on the turbulent history of modern Poland. “The Phenomenon of Solidarity: Pictures from the History of Poland, 1980-1981” commemorates the 30th anniversary of the birth of the Solidarity Movement by presenting the important dates from the strikes of August 1980 to the imposition of Martial Law in December 1981.
The exhibit depicts the path which led to the Solidarity Trade Union’s establishment, its relations with the Communist regime, and the attitude of society towards the Trade Union within the context of the most important political, social, and economic events of Poland.
This unique and powerful learning opportunity is presented by the Public Education Office of the Institute of National Remembrance.
The exhibit will be on display in the State Capitol North Corridor through December 17.
