A significant monument to the struggle for Poland's freedom which really shouldn't just be seen on its own. The Solidarity museum is superb and if you are making the journey here then you must go there as well.

This monument is situated just at the entrance of the Solidarity center, and close to a part if the harbor area which you may want to walk through. It is a tall impressive construction, whose importance is clear - historically but even nowadays, since the kind of events the monument recalls are unfortunately not just a part of the past.

A square that cannot be forgotten! I was there in December 1981. I only took photos. Amazing time! At the end of my studies. We have won. Today it is a memorial site. A few present photos and two old ones I attach.

During a bus tour on our way to the Old Town , our bus drove past this historical monument remembering Lech Walesa leadership at the Lenin Shipyards and Poland's breaking free of Communist rule. The strike/ incident in 1980 was to form an independent labor union. The nearly 300 foot tower monument made up of 3 crosses memorializes the death of the 42 workers from the 1972 and 1976 uprisings. Being of Polish American descent, this was a worthwhile side trip, and one I believe is most important in understanding part of Poland's long and very turbulent history.

Outside the Solidarity museum sits the Three Crosses Monument, which is visually striking, and commemorates the victim of the Workers Revolt.

Three crosses monument in Gdansk was raised to commemorate the victims of the worker’s revolt in Poland in December 1970.
It recalls the dramatic events when shipyard workers died tragically in the streets. For ten years the authorities didn't allow a monument to be erected. It became possible in August 1980.

Very close to the Central Train Station. At the door of the Lenin's Shipyard where Lech Walesa organised the Union.

An honouring monument to those who died in the Gdansk shipyard protest. The monument is huge. It towers above you. Located outside the Solidarity Museum, so easy to find.

Easy to visit as part of the solidarity museum. Very powerful symbol of the shipyard workers and the church.
