Biography

Unbroken soldier, cursed soldier, a soldier of the “Lost Republic of Poland”, the last lancer of the Polish Republic, “a volunteer to Auschwitz”, one of the six bravest men of the European resistance movement during World War II. He is the symbol of Poland, which – as the result of the actions of the Soviet Russia and Nazi occupation – has been irretrievably lost. He belonged to the pre partition generation, whose mission was to regain independence by Poland and when it happened – work for the free homeland. Generations brought up on the still living traditions of national uprisings shaped by the call “God, Honour, Fatherland”.
