Private archive of prof. Barbara Fatyga gathers thousands of materials regarding Polish youth culture in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The archive is an effect of various research projects led by Fatyga and her co-workers – initially at the Institute for Youth Problems Research and later in the Youth Research Centre in the Institute of Applied Sciences at the Warsaw University. The archive contains youth fanzines and cassettes as well as recordings and transcripts of biographical interviews.

Fekete Lyuk means black hole in Hungarian. It reminds most Hungarians of a legendary club, which emerged quite suddenly in a traditional working-class district. It had a cult following among young intellectuals, punks, and skinheads, but it also quickly became a symbol of nonconformity and rebellion. However, hardly anybody remembers Gyula Nagy, the man who as an agitprop educator founded the Fekete Lyuk club.
The collection contains samizdat editions of religious literature and hymnals and illegal recordings on magnetic tapes, SPs, LPs and audio cassettes. It documents the work of the members of the Unity of the Brethren Baptists and their teetering between what was permitted by the government’s supervision over the churches and their own ideas about evangelization in the period of socialism.
