The story of the anti-communist democratic opposition in Poland is a great inspiration for many people throughout the world . The Gdańsk Shipyard became a recognisable point on a map of historical peaceful victories and the point where dreams came real. Independent self-governing Trade Union “Solidarity” is a Polish trade union, it was founded on 17 September 1980 at the Gdańsk Shipyard under the leadership of Lech Wałęsa. It was the first union trade in Warsaw Pact country which wasn’t controlled by communist party. It had almost 10 million members.
