From the KARTA Center Foundation Archives in Warsaw, Poland.

Published: Woodbridge, CT: Primary Source Microfilm, 2005.
Description: 115 reels ; 35 mm.

The KARTA Center was founded in Warsaw in 1982 and serves as the archive of record for documenting the history of opposition and dissent in post-World War II Poland. The three archives included in this collection include the Solidarity movement archive, the Eastern archive, and the Opposition archive. The material covers the formation and activity of the Independent Autonomous Trade Union (Solidarnosc) as well as materials on other independent community, social and political groups. There are also memoirs, diaries and reminiscences of those who witnessed firsthand the life in the Eastern borderlands during the Second Polish Republic, the fate of Polish citizens in the Soviet Union and under the Soviet occupation and their displacement after World War II, as well as personal documents relating to everyday life in the People's Republic of Poland between 1944 and 1990.
