Franciszek Brzezicki (1924-2017)
It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Franciszek Brzezicki – a former Majdanek prisoner, co-founder of the Union of Poles in Zhytomyr.
Franciszek Brzezicki was born on 4 September 1924 in Zhytomyr to a Polish family. He was sent to Majdanek on 13 February 1943. Next, he was deported to the concentration camp in Gross-Rosen. Following the war, he was arrested by SMERSH for his activities in the Polish underground and sent to the camp for political prisoners in Omsk, where he was detained for over five years.
He was involved in the activities of the Union of Poles in Zhytomyr.
