This creative non-fiction essay captures a week spent in Gdansk, Poland, in August 2020, when I was awarded the European Poet of Freedom Award. I explore the history of Solidarity; the German novel The Tin Drum; my family's Communist past; the rise of Law and Justice, and the gaps and absences of a politicised upbringing.
