KRAKOW, Poland (Reuters) - European leaders paid tribute on Thursday to Poland's role in the defeat of communism two decades ago, saying the courage of the Solidarity trade union had made a peaceful, united Europe possible.
Poles are marking the 20th anniversary of partially free elections on June 4, 1989, that handed victory to a Solidarity-backed government and triggered a series of events culminating in the fall of the Berlin Wall that November.
