Biographical Note

Krzysztof Jagielski was born June 28, 1936 in Poznan. From the late 1950s until the early 1980s, he worked, fulfilling various duties from assistant steward to financial steward with the Polska Żegluga Morska and the Polskie Linie Oceaniczne (PLO).
In August 1980, he helped found the strike committee of PLO workers in Szczecin, and he became its chairman. He also became part of the leadership of the Solidarity movement in Pomorze Zachodnie (Western Pomerania). He served as the chairman of the Komitet Strajkowy Polskich Linii Oceanicznych and as a member of the Prezydium Komisji Zakładowej PLO, Zarząd Regionu Pomorza Zachodniego, and Krajowa Komisja Zjazdowa. Jagielski was arrested as part of the crackdown on the Szczecin shipyards in December 1981 during the introduction of martial law in Poland, after which he was imprisoned in Bydgoszcz. In March 1982, the legal proceedings against him were discontinued.
On June 23, 1983, Jagielski immigrated to West Berlin, where he continued as a Solidarity activist with the Emigracyjny Klub „Solidarność.” In 1992, he published a monograph about Solidarność activities in Szczecin in the early 1980s, Za burtą legendy. While the collection he assembled is in many ways a reflection of his own political activities in the 1980s, it can be better understood as a record of the Solidarity movement in Szczecin from 1980 to 1982, as well as of the activities of Solidarity activists abroad in the mid-to-late 1980s.

Scope and Content of Collection

The papers of Krzysztof Jagielski are composed of Jagielski's personal archive of the Solidarność movement both while living in Poland and as an émigré living in West Berlin. The collection contains newspaper clippings, clandestine literature, leaflets, photographs, graphics, sound recordings, and memorabilia relating both specifically to events in which he was personally involved and more generally to the movement, which he collected. Small parts of the collection were clearly acquired by Jagielski after the events which the materials describe as he was doing the research for his 1992 monograph on the topic.
The core components of the collection are in the Chronological File, which has two basic parts: 1) the materials produced by Jagielski and his Szczecin-based associates between August 1980 and December 1981 as the initial movement was unfolding and 2) materials produced by him and émigré associates in the mid and late 1980s as part of the Emigracyjny klub “Solidarność”. Jagielski's arrangement has been preserved. Therefore, strike leaflets, meeting notes, correspondence, conference materials, and memorabilia acquired by Jagielski; delegate election materials; clandestine literature; and drafts for the production of clandestine literature are all in this series. For the period August 1980 to December 1981, the arrangement is chronological, but approximate arrangements that Jagielski imposed and that have to do with the development or activity of a specific committee have been preserved where possible. The folder titles in the Chronological File, therefore, should not be understood as the only place to find documents relating to a specific committee or conference; rather, they indicate the majority of the documents that will be found in a particular folder. The organizing activity of a local Szczecin factory bleeds into inter-factory and regional organizing. For the émigré period covering the mid-to-late 1980s, this section of the Chronological File is largely correspondence, which was arranged numerically.
The Correspondence series, therefore, only contains correspondence which Jagielski separated and marked as private, but it is still largely about his political activity. He arranged the materials roughly chronologically but with exceptions to keep a communication history with one correspondent together, and this original arrangement has been preserved.
Documents relating to the Polish government crackdown in December 1981 and the ensuing legal process are arranged both in the Biographical File and Chronological File following Jagielski's own filing arrangement. The Biographical File contains original documents relating specifically to Jagielski and his wife, personally, as well as copies of declassified government records produced throughout the 1980s about him and other strike participants from the Sąd Pomorskiego Okręgu Wojskowego w Bydgoszczy. Jagielski obtained these copies in 2003 through an official records request. Original documents related to the December 13, 1981 strike itself and the Bydgoszcz process about the strike, from late 1981 and early 1982, are in the Chronological File.
The Printed Matter series contains Jagielski's own publications, Za burtą legendy being the most significant to this collection and in many ways a useful guide to its contents. The majority of the other publications in this series are related specifically to the Szczecin part of the Solidarity movement and form another useful key to investigating the contents of the Chronological File.
Addtionally, the Sound Recordings series contains numerous recordings from Solidarity-related events in 1980 and 1981 and the crackdown, as well as emigration activities as late as 1987.
Finally, smaller graphic materials and memorabilia items can be found throughout the Chronological File as Jagielski had arranged them, but the largest sections of materials not easily associated with a specific event or date are at the end of the Chronological File, with large items in the Oversize Material series.
