Summary

en:Władysław Gomułka addresses hundreds of thousand of people in Warsaw on 24 October 1956. At the height of his popularity, he appealed for an end to demonstrations and return to work. "United with the working class and the nation", he concluded, "the Party will lead Poland along a new way of socialism." Gomułka's popularity at that time probably equalled that of Józef Piłsudski's in 1920 and Lech Wałęsa in 1980; but disillusionment would soon follow.
