Le chemin de la vérité : mémoires by Lech Wałęsa( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Que de chemin parcouru depuis ce jour d'août 1980 où, à Gdansk, un électricien des chantiers navals Lénine signait des accords instituant le droit de grève et reconnaissant la légitimité du syndicat Solidarnosc ! Porté par plus de dix millions de travailleurs, Lech Walesa venait de remporter son bras de fer face au pouvoir communiste. La réaction ne se fit pas attendre : sous la loi martiale instaurée par le général Jaruzelski, Walesa est emprisonné. Un an après sa libération, en 1983, son prix Nobel de la paix est vécu comme une nouvelle provocation par le pouvoir, qui mettra encore six années à rendre les armes devant cet homme galvanisé par sa foi catholique, son idéal de non-violence et un sens aiguisé de la négociation. Là ne s'arrête pas sa légende. Artisan de la transition démocratique, Walesa est élu président de la République en 1990. Il engage son pays vers l'intégration européenne, prépare son entrée dans l'OTAN et obtient le retrait des troupes russes, après un demi-siècle de présence. Dans ses mémoires, Lech Walesa raconte son enfance, ses luttes syndicales et les débuts de son engagement politique. Il réfute les accusations de collusion avec la Sûreté communiste lors des émeutes de décembre 1970. Pour la première fois, enfin, il évoque ses années de présidence, " aboutissement de notre révolution ", le soutien actif du pape Jean-Paul II, l'héritage de Solidarnosc et les raisons de son échec, en 1995, face au candidat Kwasniewski, dont la victoire fut selon lui " un arrêt au milieu du gué ". Autobiographie d'un symbole, épopée historique, ces mémoires font entendre " la voix d'un homme qui a consacré toute sa vie à une seule cause " : celle de la vérité. Lui répondent les témoignages inédits de son épouse Danuta, Bronislaw Geremek, Mgr Jozef Glemp, Mikhaïl Gorbatchev, Vaclav Havel, Tadeusz Mazowiecki, Shimon Peres ou Andrzej Wajda, parmi bien d'autres
