The Solidarity [Solidarność] Collection

This collection of Polish uncensored publications and Solidarity/[Solidarność] material includes non-periodical publications, graphics, photographs, cassettes, medals, stamps, artifacts, posters as well as other material generated by "Solidarność” and related organizations in Poland and internationally. Periodicals, books and pamphlets which initially constituted the largest part of the collection, have been catalogued separately.

Some of the collection highlights include bulletins and documents issued by the Coordinating Office Abroad of NSZZ “Solidarność” and by international groups organized in support of NSZZ “Solidarność.” Canadian organizations and initiatives are represented extensively. In 1983, the call to expand the collection was issued to private donors to donate Polish Solidarity material in their possession, and the collection has grown since then.
