Description:

In the 1980s, an oppressive communist regime suppressed free speech, dissent, and messages of freedom in Poland. In resistance, Radio Free Poland was born: a hidden radio station which broadcast messages of freedom to the people of Warsaw. Professor Peter Jaworski and his family, who lived in Poland during this time, share their personal stories of what life was like under the communist regime, how Radio Free Poland worked, and the night when all of Warsaw blinked their lights.
