Confronting the Stasi past

The former activities of Catholic priests as spies have become the focal point of Poland's confrontation with its Stasi past. In an interview led by Michal Olszewski and Malgorzata Skowronska, Bishop Tadeusz Pieronek says the wrong priorities are being set: "The scrutiny of the past has reached fever pitch in Poland... The worst thing is that those who really should confess aren't doing so. The former secret service officers, those specialised in spying within the Church, the founders of the system – these people have no desire to purge themselves of their guilt. We began this scrutiny of the past by exposing the dramatic stories of people who are already broken."
