"Comments are turned off", well, well. Graphically interesting (total lack of credits), but rather shallow presentation by an organisation assuming the title "we". A "we" that "still remained hopeful for what lay ahead" - presumably the current PiS "reforms" of liberal democracy

Although it has English subtitles, it unreasonably assumes the foreign viewer's knowledge of Polish realities - for example what the words "Jasna Góra" mean, and why what some "Pope" says is deemed important. Most outsiders will be puzzled by the lack of mention of Wałęsa.

oh, I see, so it's not the "solidarity" of people that made the difference, but the church and the pope... very interesting

I see the institute of national propaganda is now working with the Vatican(another country), I guess this is expected when the Director is a proud football hooligan.
