Abstract:

In January 1943, Commander-in-Chief and Prime Minister of Poland,General Władysław Sikorski, received a memorandum on the objectives of the Polish foreignpolicy drawn up by Lieutenant Colonel Tadeusz Zakrzewski (1897–1964). Zakrzewski believedthat, to ensure Poland’s victory in the war, the government should make use of its three mainadvantages with regard to the governments of the Allied states, the European allies of Germanyand international public opinion. The role of the armed forces was to fight alongside their allies.The nation was expected to mount an active resistance against the Germans and to combatcollaboration with the occupier. The task of propaganda was to spread knowledge about thePolish contributions to the war, as well as to present the Polish proposal for the frameworkfor peace. The expected outcome of these policies was the permanent restoration of the Polishstate within its pre-war borders – with some territorial gains at the expense of Germany – andthe establishment of the Union of Central Europe.
