Poland 1956-1990

Tour Introduction

Poland’s relationship with the Soviet Union and Communism was never an easy one. Its pre-war Communist Party was dissolved on Stalin’s orders and approximately 5,000 of its activists murdered. Indeed Stalin once remarked that, ‘imposing communism on Poland is like putting a saddle on a cow’.

For those schools who choose OCR’s ‘Poland 1956-1990: The People and the State’ module as its non-British depth study, Anglia is delighted to offer a tour designed specifically to support this course of study.

Based in the city of Gdansk, home of the independent trade union, Solidarity, which led the protests against the communist regime, this fully guided 3-day tour will include visits to the former Lenin Shipyards, the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers and the European Solidarity Centre. It offers your students an invaluable insight into the workings of the Polish State in the last half of the Twentieth Century.
