New Year's Eve in Constitution Square. It was the first open air winter party in Warsaw. The cynics said, “Are you crazy? No one will come!”. They do not know Warsaw. Warsaw bade farewell to the year 1952. The Year of the Constitution and the MDM, the rally of young leaders, and the parliament elections. A year of increasing strength to the country and the nation that we worked for so hard and sincerely for. We are at a big New Year’s Eve party in the hall of the Warsaw University of Technology. The New Year’s polonaise dance is start. The grand festivities were attended by leading Varsovian workers, artists, students, engineers, supervisors and employees from Warsaw’s great institutions. The whole of Poland joyfully welcomed the New Year, the year of 1953. We are looking ahead towards new, difficult challenges and new successes. We look to the future.
