Meetings in forests on the guarded Polish-Czechoslovak border. Shared interest in the fates of the political prisoners of both Communist states. The exchange of samizdat publications and information. The phenomenon of Polish-Czechoslovak solidarity brings together courage, friendship and sense of humour. The new Czech translation of the book Hranicím navzdory. Příběh Polsko-československé solidarity (Despite the Border: The Story of Polish-Czechoslovak Solidarity) (ÚSTR, Prague 2018) was launched by its authors, Łukasz Kamiński, a Polish historian and former director of Poland’s Institute of National Rembembrance, and Petr Blažek, a Czech historian based at the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes, and many Poles and Czechs who remember those times..
