Poland Commemorates Martial Law Twenty Five Years Later

Posted by Mike on December 13, 2006

Twenty five years ago today, martial law was declared in Communist Poland. As described by Radio Polonia and Radio Free Europe, Poland is commemorating that tragic day with re-enactments, prayer services, lectures, and remembrances of those who were murdered.

Few nations have experienced and stared down the face of evil like Poland. With a history of partition, Nazi occupation and Communist oppression, the Polish people never lost their sense of who they are or what they believe. They never flinched in the face of tyranny. Their determination to be free is heartwarming and instructive for today’s world.  It is clear they are not about to forget where they’ve been and how far they’ve come anytime soon. Two late great leaders must be smiling today.
