PHC Virtual Program: “If Walls Could Talk Polish Women”

Presented by Dr. Anna Muller, University of Michigan

WHEN Wednesday, March 13th, at 6:00 p.m. CST

“If the Walls Could Speak” is a story of women who were imprisoned during the Communist period in Poland. These women, widely regarded as Polish patriots, endured punishments that were disproportionately severe. They were subjected to cruel interrogations, handed lengthy prison sentences, and confined to the most horrifying conditions. Despite the extreme hardships of both interrogations and life in a prison cell, many of these women managed to maintain a certain amount of agency. It was their care for each other, the relationships they developed in prison, and a belief that they still had social roles to play in Poland that helped them survive.
