The Polish 1968 political crisis, also known in Poland as March 1968, Students' March, or March events was a series of major student, intellectual and other protests against the communist regime of the Polish People's Republic. The crisis resulted in the suppression of student strikes by security forces in all major academic centres across the country and the subsequent repression of the Polish dissident movement. The major victim of that crisis were Polish Jews engaged both in the opposition and the communist party.
The communist regime's reaction to the Arab-Israeli six day war and the engagement of students of Jewish origin and intelligentsia led to the mass repression of Jews. Some of them were forced to leave the country and lose their Polish citizenship.
