Anna Walentynowicz Monument

  Skwer Anny Walentynowicz ,   Wrzeszcz         25 Nov 2019
This monument to the Solidarity activist whose dismissal from the Lenin Shipyards on August 8, 1980 sparked the August strikes was conceived by the Godność (Dignity) organisation, designed by Stanisław Milewski and largely paid for by Solidarity trade union members. It stands in a small square named in Walentynowicz’s honour next to the block of flats where she lived in later life. The inscription on its base is a famous line used during the fight against communism: 'There is no freedom without solidarity'.
