The Days of Solidarity (wersja angielska)
The events, which took place in Poland in August 1980, brought about a turning point in the history of post-war Europe. This breach in the unity of the Soviet bloc opened the way to the breakdown of a totalitarian system which had triumphed after the II World War.
