Group publication title:
This paper introduces a person from Grodzisk, a scout and social activist Łucjan Jankowski who was born in 1901 in Poznań. The text also presents the lot of scouting in Grodzisk in the years 1945-1949. In Grodzisk Wielkopolski, like in the rest of the country, Boy and Girl Scouts paid a high price for their participation in the creation of the Polish Scouting Association (Polish abbr. ZHP) as well as for the activity in ZHP in the second half of the 40s of the twentieth century. ; One of the persecuted by the security apparatus officers was Ł. Jankowski, who in the years 1946-1949 served as a Troop Leader of District Scout Troop in Grodzisk Wielkopolski. For his scouting activity Jankowski was subjected to various kinds of repression on the part of the security apparatus officers, including many months of custody interrogation. After being released, he was deprived of the post of president of the Consumer Cooperative "Zgoda". In the course of the investigation, he was accused of belonging to a clandestine organization. ; Due to the lack of sufficient evidence investigation against Jankowski was discontinued. Leaving prison in 1952 did not end the repression carried out by the security apparatus. This harassment led to a stroke, which resulted in death on 21 February 1958. Burial of Ł. Jankowski was an event of great importance, attended by a numerous crowd of inhabitants of Grodzisk Wielkopolski including a large group of scouts.
