Sunday 27 May 2012: Memorabilia
Day one of my Spring clear out and I've started with:
1. the stuff under my bed... ugh the dust!
2. The clothes stashes away in cupboards that I haven't worn since... er... before the Berlin Wall came down!
Just to remind you Solidarnosc or the Solidarity Movement was an independent labour union, started in the Gdansk Shipyard in Poland. Led by Lech Walesa, it was highly instrumental in the country's break from Communism and the subsequent break up of Soviet hold over Eastern Europe.
I was there if I remember in May 1989, the Wall came down in the November.
