Gdańsk, Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland
16 Kudos
A stop we made while in Gdansk was at the Gdansk Shipyard. This is a huge complex, which after World War II was a major employer of thousands. But in the 1970s things began to deteriorate and times were ripe for a rebellion, led by Lech Walesa, for a workers’ rebellion. Thus, was the birth of the Solidarity movement. It was very moving for us to see and hear about some of the history of Poland from a local’s perspective. It is hard for us to imagine one’s homeland being occupied like Poland was but our guide really made us realize (as much as one can) the impact.
