Keywords: 1968, Adam Michnik, Poland, student movement, anti-Semitism
The article explores the student movement, which emerged at the Warsaw university and at other Polish universities in the spring of 1968. On the basis of scientific literature, memoirs and newspaper articles in the Delo daily newspaper and Praxis bimonthly magazine, the article sheds light on the Polish »student spring« and presents the responses to it in Slovenia and Yugoslavia. The author also analyses the consequences of the student movement, which may have not succeeded in its demands, but nevertheless influenced the political and social changes in Poland in the subsequent years.
