Eastern Europe Dissent

Dissent in Eastern European regimes cannot be reduced to the simple connotation of "opposition", but must be considered above all as an attempt to build a parallel polis based on the responsibility of every citizen.

From these positions a broad movement was born capable of influencing the behaviour and mentality of public opinion, to the point that - apart from Romania - the totalitarian system was overthrown in a peaceful way, with a new ruling class recognized by the majority of the population.

We have collected texts, materials, interviews on Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and DDR, thanks also to writers and experts such as Francesco M. Cataluccio and Annalia Guglielmi and to the collaboration with associations and intellectuals of these countries.
