Book Synopsis

Detailed investigation of the murder of young Polish priest Jerzy Popieluszko (1847-84) and its aftermath. Popieluszko was kidnapped and killed by security policeman after speaking out in support of Solidarity (the free trade union outlawed by the Communist authorities). For the first time a Communist government was forced to try and condemn its own secret police, but doubts remain whether all those guilty were brought to justice. Photographs; appendices; endnotes. Author was a journalist with the BBC for 30 years and now lives in Canberra.
