“We have something to celebrate”, headlines the economic daily on the 24th anniversary of 1989’s parliamentary elections, which marked the beginning of Poland’s transition from communism to democracy.

Citing key figures in Polish political, social, and academic life, DGP lists the main benefits of the transformation in the country, including political freedom, the end of censorship, membership in the EU, a nearly doubled GDP, thriving entrepreneurship and improved health conditions.

The daily’s front page reproduces part of the Solidarity trade union’s 1989 election campaign poster and, together with all Poland’s major dailies, prints its headline in the movement’s historical typeface.
