Why did the workers join the protests against the communist rule in December 1970? What was the revolution like? Have similar events happened in the Polish history of the 20th century? – based on archival materials, mainly interviews with participants, students will discover the beginnings of the nascent opposition movement and learn about the hypocrisy of the then authorities.
Workshop participants will learn how the authorities manipulated public opinion in the times of the People's Republic of Poland. Let us take the story of December 1970 as an example. We will look at how a false image of those events was built with the help of censorship and newspeak. Are we dealing with similar phenomena today? Is there censorship? During the lesson, there will be plenty of examples from the world of the latest politics to provoke a discussion on contemporary mechanisms of creating reality with the help of language.
