December 29, 1981

General Tadeusz Szaciło declared at a conference for foreign journalists that "today in Poland we have the first day of peace, without any strikes or other social tensions". At workplaces, employees were subject to "verification" - in fact, this was a purge of "Solidarity" members. During martial law, purges were also carried out in professional groups that were of considerable importance for the authorities - journalists, the judiciary, and education.
