Second edition (first published in 1984 by “Głos”) of this list of Polish political prisoners, published by the Confederation of Independent Poland (KPN), a nationalist political party with far-right leanings. The front wrapper features a symbol of KPN, combined with the Solidarity logo, an emblem of an uneasy coalition of the left and right elements of the Polish opposition to the totalitarian regime of the time. The rear wrapper bears the address of the Swedish office of KPN.
