Adam Kalita - Poland
…We tried to create independent structures connected with culture, such as the underground theatre, whose performances attracted a broad spectrum of citizens of that time. From well-known poets such as Adam Zagajewski through workers of Vladimir Lenin Steelworks involved in underground “Solidarity” to students and inhabitants of Kraków. We established an underground university and self-study circles for the youth. I believe it a great success of ours that the activity of these structures was never disclosed. They functioned long after I was arrested in 1983. There were also poetic meetings our friends arranged. Of course, all the above-mentioned actions were not taken on a wide scale. They attracted people of certain backgrounds. However, they were not the same people all the time that participated in our cultural and educational endeavors. The groups of attendees changed, which was very interesting and important from the social point of view. I think it was our biggest success.
