The invasion of Poland by Soviet troops massacred the “Solidarnosc” movement, which had spread throughout the country, transforming itself into the possibility of obtaining freedom and social improvements.

Below is the transcription of the text in the painting:

Mt 11,21-22 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.  But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.  Mt 12,37 For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced.   Mt 24,7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. New International Version (NIV)
