Wow, it seems not only Johnny Be Good keeps regular record on other members.
No. It was just a presumptive question.
As an expert, you should know the difference between 1960s and 1980s in Poland
Communist rule didn't end until 1989, so politically there was no difference.
The only change over that time was the fall in living standards and ever increasing oppression.
So when the going got tough, the tough got going; and those with privilege got a passport and got up and left.
Can you tell us what you know?
Well, considering you left Poland in her darkest hours for bright and sunny, safe and comfy America, one can only conclude that you are just another one of those "Am Pollacks, obsessed with their "true" indentity which has little to do with real Poles."
