Memories of Poland, Lessons From Growing Up Under Communism

By Paylie Roberts

General non-fiction | eBook


Are you familiar with Polish Solidarity? It was an organization that was a major contributor to ending communism (non-violently) in Poland. Solidarity formed spontaneously early on, as people were fighting for better conditions while under communism. Instead, they ended up with martial law. Two years later my father was exiled from Poland. As a member of Solidarity, he was arrested and sent to an interment camp. I was only a child living in Poland then. After researching the history of why my family was exiled from Poland, I realized the important and unique lessons that Solidarity offers Americans today about overcoming tyranny, oppression, and corruption. As an American adult, I see many parallels between America today and Poland under communism, and I also see what we can do about it. That’s what my book is about. I hope that by spreading this knowledge I can help prevent history repeating itself.
