The Voivodeship Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party
As one of the December songs tells us, "The Fat Man's Palace" was the symbol of the ruling Party. This was where the Szczecin workers came directly from their factories, on 17 December 1970, hoping for fair negotiations and agreements. Instead, they met with indifference that sparked their anger. During the demonstration, participated in by more than a dozen thousand people, the Committee building was set in fire. The army gathered in front of it did not intervene.
