A short lesson in Polish history

The conference that I'm attending here in Poland (CONFidence 2009/2.0) is being held in a movie theater, “Kino Femina,” and is located at Aleja Solidarnosci 115. Is is at the intersection of Aleja Jana Pawla II which makes this a very interesting intersection, to say the least. A bit of translation assistance might be useful, though!

"Aleja Solidarnosci" means Solidarity Avenue. "Aleja Jana Pawla II" means John Paul II Avenue. If you are at all familiar with Polish history of the 1970s and 1980s, the significance should be pretty obvious!
