The election campaign of the “Solidarity” Citizens’ Committee relied on election posters picturing the individual candidates with Lech Wałęsa. This innovative idea taking advantage of Lech Wałęsa’s immense popularity has contributed to Solidarity’s final victory. All photographs were taken by Erazm Ciołek and Maciej Goliszewski during one meeting of the Solidarity candidates in Gdańsk.
Jacek Kuroń - co-author of the famous “Letter to the Party” of 1964, dissident, one of the founders of the Workers’ Defence Committee, Solidarity aide.
