Bolesław Ścibiorek 1906–1945
Bolesław Ścibiorek was a member of the Union of Rural Youth and a peasant activist with distinctly left-wing views. Above all, he was an exceptional pedagogue and a youth educator. As a teacher in rural schools he left lasting recollections in the memory of his alumni. During the occupation Bolesław Ścibiorek was a soldier of the Peasants’ Battalions and the head of the Directorate of Civil Resistance in the Łódzkie voivodeship. After the end of the war he was rebuilding the free homeland as the Chairman of the Chief Provisional Board and then, a secretary of the Board of the Rural Youth Union of the Polish Republic “Wici”. Initially, he was an activist of the “Lublin” People’s Party, a member of its Supreme Council and a deputy to the State National Council. In November 1945 together with a group of Stanisław Bańczyk he joined the Polish People’s Party guided by Stanisław Mikołajczyk where he took up a role of deputy secretary- general. His involvement in the PPP’s political activity did not last long. Bolesław Ścibiorek was assassinated on December 5, 1945 in his private flat in Łódź.
