This is a broad educational project aimed at making Poles aware of the importance of the political and economic changes of 30 years ago for the development of Poland.
We are planning:
The book will premiere on 4 June 2019.
Poland began its political and economic transformations as the first in 1989, even before the fall of the Berlin Wall, providing an example to other Eastern European countries.
Freedom is of fundamental importance for democracy. In 1989 many people laid the foundations for Poland's future success, including Lech Wałęsa, the founder of "Solidarity" and later president of the Republic of Poland, and Leszek Balcerowicz, the author of the Polish economic transformation.
What is freedom for two architects of Polish democracy Lech Wałęsa and Leszek Balcerowicz? How did their actions and decisions lead to democratic changes in Poland? And is freedom given once and for all?
These and other important questions are answered by the book, which is a record of the first conversation between the authors of the Polish transformation, the publication of which would not have been possible without your support.
Journalist and political reporter, currently at TVN24 ("Fakty" and "Fakty po Faktach"); deals mainly with topics related to politics and the Church; a graduate of Polish philology at Jagiellonian University; she was the parliamentary rapporteur for Wiadomości TVP1 for many years and is also an author of books and documentary films.
