Witness and participant of Poland’s regaining independence. Wincenty Witos’s speech in Reichsrat on 16 June 1917
Languages of publication
The author quotes the famous speech by Wincenty Witos in Reichsrat, delivered by him in Polish during World War I. The speech confirms the uncompromising stance of the peasant activists and their special services in working out a clear-cut stance on the matter of regaining independence by Poland. It had been agreed that the president of the Club should speak out on behalf of the peasant activists and present to the Parliament the problems which that group faced. They were issues brought about by the authorities, of political, social and economic nature, resulting from, among others, Russian occupation of Galicia and behavior of Austro-Hungarian troops towards local people after recapturing the province from the Russians.
