Debate on the fortieth anniversary of the introduction of martial law

Today’s 40- and 50-year-old generation didn’t directly participate in the horrific events of 40 years ago, and didn’t have to be heroic as victims of martial law. The minister said that these people died in order to live in a free country.

Speaking about the phenomenon of “solidarity”, the president of MEiN emphasized the role of John Paul II and Cardinal Stefan Wiesinski. – All this caused the development of the Solidarity movement on an unprecedented scale in the world – added Minister Przemyslav Kzarnik.

The Minister of Education and Science emphasized that in subsequent years the hero was called General Jaruzelsky, and this was a mistake. – In the 90s we heard about the hero who was General Wojciech Jaruzelsky, who “found the courage” to save Poland from the invasion of the Soviet Union. In the thinking person, he aroused an internal opposition. How do you show heroism by attacking your nation? December 13th every year in the 1990s was a painful experience precisely because of the strong falsification of the date. General Wojciech Jaruzelski was not a national hero, but a traitor to the interests of the Polish nation, which made the decision to impose martial law, the minister stressed during his speech.

Minister Przemyslav Kazarnik also referred to the topic of the “round table”: – Adam Michnik was the architect of the “round table”, Yaruzelsky’s victory in the presidential election, but also the impunity of the group. Despite all the problems with stability at that time, we are the beneficiaries of the “Solidarity” uprising and the heroism of millions of Poles – said Przemyslaw Kzarnik. – This is what the conference devoted to – the phenomenon of solidarity movement. “Today we will explore the truth of that time,” he added.

History and Present – a new topic in schools

The topic of a new subject appeared in primary schools during the discussion. Minister Przemyslav Czarnik spoke about the history and the present. – From September 2022, students will begin to get acquainted with what happened in Poland from 1945 to 2015. It is impossible to understand reality without understanding the historical processes that led to this reality – emphasized the head of MEiN.

“The nation has not lost its firmness” – a comic book revived on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the implementation of martial law

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the imposition of martial law, Tygodnik Solidarność in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science has prepared a lively comic book. The material presents selected cotton threads from Poland’s recent history, including John Paul II’s pilgrimage to his homeland, the emergence of “solidarity”, and the introduction of martial law or massacre at the Wojcic Mine.
