Scouts in Poland

Scouts Poland

A recently unearthed photograph dating back to the early 1920s. This looks to be a group of scouts somewhere in Poland but is unfortunately unlabelled.

Three things you may not know about scouting in Poland:

  • Andzrej Malkowski founded Polish scouting in 1910 after translating Baden-Powell’s Scouting for Boys and forming the first Scout unit.
  • The largest Scouting organization in Poland – Zwiazek Harcerstwa Polskiego / ZHP – was founded in 1918.
  • Many Scouts participated in the fighting during the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944.
