The Angel of Freedom @ Solidarity Square is full of symbolic meaning. The square as a setting with waves and the angel in a boat. Fitting for a port city. An angel to commemorate the fallen of the anti-communist riots. A symbol for the Solidarity movement. Once in a while I stumble across monuments that moves me, this is one...
Great Memorial, I lived in Poland as a child during the 1970's protests and remember many of the events commemorated by the memorial. Very nicely done, great historical images and timelines, with room for personal reflections.
It was a nice idea to have a symbol of Solidarność there. Szczecin is a place where this big movement was the strongest due to shipyards and workers. Monument has a list of people who died in 80s for freedom of Poland. Whole square looks like big wave, where the boat with sailing angel brings a freedom.
