In 1991, the Communist Party lost control of the Soviet Union, the culmination of a process that started in 1980 in the Polish shipyards when millions joined Lech Walesa's Solidarity movement which signaled the beginning of the end for Soviet-style communism. Here eyewitnesses tell the story of how the Communist system collapsed as they remember the extraordinary weeks that preceded and followed the fall of the Berlin Wall; Poland's fight for solidarity; Czechoslovakia's "Velvet Revolution;" the struggle for power in the Soviet Union and more.
