Professor Zbigniew Wojcik – PACT member – has just published an autobiographical book about his personal experiences when trying to escape from communist Poland in the 1980s and describes the methods the communist authorities used to try and stop his family from joining him. The book reads like a spy thriller and provides an eye opening look at what life was really like under communist rule. The book is in English.
The book is now available for purchase at Barnes and Noble.
